Developing a 2030 Vision for Nursing



A project is underway to develop a 2030 Vision for Nursing and we are looking for your input. If you are a nurse, student nurse, or represent nurses, your contribution and views are being sought.

The goal is to produce a vision for maximising the nursing contribution to health and well-being. It will set out what nursing needs to look like by 2030 and capture the things we do well, along with the things that need to change and be done differently.

Have your say

You can contribute by completing the 2030 Nursing Vision Survey, or by participating in a local engagement conversation. Health Boards, Universities and nursing stakeholders are hosting local conversations so that you can have your say and influence the 2030 Vision for Nursing.

The engagement phase, including the online survey, will run until 9th December.

The survey and local conversations focus on 5 themes:

Modernising public perceptions of nursing
Staff experience
Preparing nurses for future needs and roles
Working in health and social care teams
Nursing practice and health promotion/public health

NMC review

This work is being carried out in the context of the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s (NMC) Review of Standards for Education. Much of what is said on the future of nursing in Scotland will feed into the NMC review.

What will happen next?

The engagement feedback will be analysed to identify the key messages. The Chief Nursing Officer intends to publish the 2030 Nursing Vision in summer 2017.
