Amendments need to be made to the Nursing and Midwifery Order to provide the NMC with the necessary legal powers to effectively regulate the nursing associate profession.

It is intended that the key aspects and regulatory functions of the legislation will apply to the nursing associate profession in the same way as for nurses and midwives. In amending the legislation, the regulatory framework for nursing associates will be broadly similar to that of nurses and midwives, except where it is necessary to accommodate specific differences in the nursing associate profession.
