Nursing and midwifery education, learning and development
Education, learning and development is integral to the practice of nurses and midwives and supports the professions within a contemporary, evidence based and patient centred framework.
Education, learning and development supports and enhances the nursing and midwifery workforces’ capability and capacity to respond to new and emerging models of care and sustains and prepares the workforce now and for the future.
