NMC launches new professionalism guide

Nurses going over notes

A new guide sets out what professionalism in nursing and midwifery practice should look like and identifies key principles for employers to consider when providing supportive practice environments.

Enabling professionalism

The professionalism of the nursing workforce is crucial in the provision of safe and effective patient care. 

Enabling professionalism in nursing and midwifery practice describes how important supportive environments for nurses and midwives are when supporting professional practice. The guide encourages positive behaviours and instilling confidence in the profession to raise concerns that could compromise safety, quality and experience.

Environments that support and encourage professional practice should:

  • Recognise and encourage nursing and midwifery leadership
  • Encourage autonomous and innovative nursing and midwifery practice
  • Enable inter professional collaboration
  • Enable practice learning and development 
  • Provide appropriate resources

Share the guide with your nurses and midwives and download your copy from the NMC website.
