Professional Resource Centre

Professional Resource Centre

The Nursing in Practice Professional Resource Centre aims to provide you with the latest updates in professional issues related to pay, clinical skills, career development and employment.

With the responsibilities of the primary care nurse increasing and the new requirement for nurses to be educated to degree level, extra support and recognition are vital for all professionals working in this setting. The coalition’s NHS reforms have provided extra challenges and the work of the primary care nurse, in the GP practice or in the community, is a key part of the drive for better public health.
