Training for specialist and advanced nursing roles may be remodelled to introduce more crossover between hospital and community settings.

Janice Sigsworth, deputy chief nursing officer, said one possible model being discussed 'essentially refocuses post-graduate training around five areas', including long-term conditions and public health.

She was speaking after a summit meeting on the future of nursing education attended by Chief Nursing Officer Christine Beaseley and representatives from the RCN, NMC and NHS Employers.

The moves would mirror present government policy, set out in the primary care white paper last year, on moving a number of services out of the acute sector.
