HEE in favour of regulation for new nursing associate role


This makes me so angry!!! I have been an assistant practitioner for 5 years and was told 7 years ago we would be registered. Seven years later they have no place for us, we work as health cares with no designated place for us to work as assistant practitioners. Sums it up when in the drop menu on this website there was no selection for Assistant practitioners!! That's after 9 years of this role being around and even the nursing times doesnt recognise our role, hell even the CQC didn't know what our role was. The solution is to create an identical role following the same first two years of the nursing degree but call it something different! If they can't work out where we fit in where are these 1000 or so nursing associate going to fit in.
