Nursing Curriculum in the United Kingdom

Posted

Hi! I just want to ask about the nursing curricula in the United Kingdom. How it is implemented and who implements it? And if there is a certain law that guides the curriculum? If you have any resources about the nursing curricula in uk as compared to the curricula in the us pls answer. thank youuuu

Silverdragon102, BSN

Specializes in Medical and general practice now LTC. Has 33 years experience.

Would expect the NMC to be involved with the nursing curriculum in the UK. They will have set certain minimal hours required both clinical and theory and then expect each university to decide how the rest is spent?

Just did a google search and this came up

http://standards.nmc-uk.org/Documents/Pre-registration%20nursing%20education%20in%20UK%20FINAL%2006092010.pdf

Universities will have to sign off that the student meet certain requirements. Also the UK training is specialised opposed to generalized like the US

Yes i agree, the NMC approves nursing education and also it has to meet the EU directive for nursing
