A case for a pre-registration branch in primary care nursing

Milly Smith Principal Lecturer in Primary Care, University of Wolverhampton, Walsall, West Midlands

With greater emphasis on primary care and nurses being encouraged to play a key role in its delivery, the author argues in this article that an additional branch of pre-registration education should be established. She makes the case that, in the light of consultation by the Nursing and Midwifery Council, now is the time to examine the benefits of a specialist primary care branch.
