Survey: review of national competency standards for enrolled nurses

21 Nov 2012

The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (National Board) invites enrolled nurses, registered nurses and midwives to participate in a survey on national competency standards for enrolled nurses.

The National Board has funded Monash University to undertake a project to review the current NMBA Enrolled Nurse (EN) Competency Standards.

The primary purpose of the project is to revise the current National Board competencies for enrolled nurses for relevance and currency against the contemporary role and scope of practice.

The review project will comprise an online survey and a focus group (for ENs), with interviews across various categories of ENs.
