Nursing 2030 Vision: Preparing, Supporting and Retaining the Workforce
One year on from the publication of the Nursing 2030 Vision, this event will examine how to recruit, support, prepare and retain the nursing workforce for future demands.
Nursing has taken on new responsibilities
The Nursing 2030 Vision focuses on three areas of development: personalising care, preparing nurses for future needs and roles and supporting nurses.
However, amid tightening budgets and resources, it is much more likely that people will find that their care increasingly managed by nurses working in multidisciplinary and multiagency teams, straddling health and social care, as well as voluntary and independent sectors.
As we approach the first anniversary of the publication of the Nursing 2030 Vision, the profession is faced with making fundamental changes to the workforce to make it sustainable for future demand.
Attend this timely Holyrood briefing to get an up-to-date understanding of the Vision’s progress, understand the challenges around to recruit, support and retain the nursing workforce.
