View StatisticsShow Statistical Information
AbstractNursing and midwifery education is the foundation of a qualified and competent nursing and midwifery workforce. Improving the quality of nursing and midwifery education and training is an important way of strengthening health systems. This is approached principally by establishing standards for professional education, assuring quality educational processes and institutions, and accrediting institutions offering educational programmes for initial, specialist and advanced professional education. The aim of this publication is to support the establishment of systems that promote improvement in the quality of nursing education in the Region. It sets out a number of agreed regional nursing education standards, associated quality criteria and sources of evidence, and discusses the key principles underpinning the standards.
