About the role
Our Professional Practice Directorate is at the heart of shaping the nursing, midwifery and nursing associate professions.
As part of our regulatory function we set the standards that nurses, midwives and nursing associates have to meet, alongside setting the Code.
We take a proportionate approach to the regulation of post-registration qualifications. We reserve regulation for those areas where ensuring consistency of standards of proficiency, and standards for education and training, is needed to achieve a higher level of quality and safety in order to mitigate risk and to reassure the public.
One of the means we have of recognising post-registration qualifications is through setting standards of proficiency for specialist community public health nurses (SCPHN). The second way we do this is through setting standards for specialist practice qualifications (SPQs). Specialist practice qualifications are annotations to our register and indicate that a registered nurse has successfully undertaken an NMC approved SPQ programme that meets our standards in a particular area of practice.
We also approve over 90 education institutions, including 280 SCPHN programmes and 241 community nursing SPQ programmes. We approve these institutions and programmes against our standards, and then continue to monitor them to ensure our standards continue to be met.
This is a really exciting time to be joining the Directorate as we have recently published our new post registration SCPHN and community nursing SPQ standards and are now looking to actively support their implementation across the UK. As we look to the future, we will also be exploring regulating Advanced Practice, reviewing the Code and reviewing our approach to revalidation.
We’re therefore looking for a Senior Nursing Adviser (post-registration) to work alongside our Assistant Director, Education and Standards, and Senior Nursing and Midwifery Advisers. You’ll have a key role in providing up-to-date professional expertise and advice to the NMC executive and Council, and all of the NMC’s operational functions. This includes contributing to the ongoing development, review, implementation and evaluation of all the regulatory tools and standards relating to education and practice. It also includes engaging with external partners and stakeholders.
Within this role your area of practice for revalidation will include nursing regulation, standards, education, quality and policy.
If you’re an experienced professional with either a SCPHN and/or community nursing SPQ qualification, used to working at a senior level and wanting to explore new challenges then we’d love to hear from you.
Ideally you will be an experienced registered nurse or midwife SCPHN and / or an experienced registered nurse with a community nursing SPQ, with a demonstrable experience of management and leadership, and a passion and drive to advance the profession.
You will also have a proven track record of building and maintaining high level relationships and working in partnership, alongside evidence of successful development and implementation of strategic plans.
It will be a condition of employment that you maintain your NMC registration.
