Public consultation on draft enrolled nurse standards for practice
Monash University is conducting a research project funded by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (National Board) to develop Enrolled nurse standards for practice.
These standards for practice will replace the current approved National competency standards for the enrolled nurse. The intention of the review is to make sure that the standards for practice provide an accurate guide for enrolled nurse contemporary practice and the educational preparation that enrolled nurses require to deliver professional health care.
Released: 7 August 2014
Closes: 2 October 2014
Please provide feedback on the draft Enrolled nurse standards for practice by close of business on 2 October 2014. This link takes you to the survey that Monash University is conducting on behalf of the National Board:
Monash University will also collate feedback to inform a report on findings. The survey breaks down the draft Enrolled nurse standards, and asks specific questions about each one.
