National Council for the Professional Development for Nursing and Midwifery: newsletter Spring 2004: issue 13.
National Council for the Professional Development of Nursing and Midwifery
One of the central roles of the National Council is to work closely with the Nursing and Midwifery Planning and Development Units within each of the Health Boards to plan and make provision for additional funding for continuing education. This is the fourth year in which the National Council has fulfilled this role. This funding is over and above the normal funding that each Health Board has available for this purpose. It is intended to be used to address areas of continuing education that might not normally be funded. Thus, for example, one of the most important functions of this funding would be to ensure that greater access to postregistration training and education is provided to nurses and midwives outside of the greater population areas. This newsletter is devoted to a large extent to reporting on the activities of the National Council over the past year in this area. It gives me great pleasure to be able to report on the many courses, projects and programmes that have been funded by the National Council throughout the country. These courses are for the benefit of all nurses and midwives – not just for clinical specialists and advanced practitioners. A large number of nurses and midwives will benefit from these courses in every one of the branches of the profession.
