GPN standards for education & practice
Published: 2 October, 2017
Queens Nursing Institute (QNI) have drawn up new voluntary standards for general practice nursing education and practice to reflect recent educational developments for nurses moving into General Practice.
The new standards are focused on senior General Practice Nurses (GPNs) and have been designed to reflect the requirements of this role working in new models of care and to reflect the rapid changes in the primary care environment. With the emergence of General Practice hubs, clusters and federations, there is a clear role for the Senior GPN in leading and managing a team of nurses, health care assistants and others across the organisation. Their expertise is set out within these Standards with a view to guiding senior GPN clinicians, their employers and higher education institutions to ensure they enable senior GPNs to meet the standards.
