‘More opportunities’ for senior practice nurses

A new set of voluntary standards for senior general practice nurses has been drawn up by the Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI) and QNI Scotland. The standards – clinical care, leadership and management; facilitation of learning; and evidence – research and development – reflect the competences required to deliver person-centred care when leading a nursing team. QNI chief executive Crystal Oldman, pictured, said: ‘Senior practice nurses are undertaking areas of work that were reserved to GPs and there are more opportunities available to them.’
