New guidance promotes role of nurses working in care homes

The author of new guidance to support registered staff that work in care homes said the “highly skilled” role had previously been “undervalued” but was now a major area of opportunity for nurses.
The Queen’s Nursing Institute has launched a new educational resource for nurses who either already work in or are considering going to work in the care home environment.
“There are far more beds with nursing homes than there are in all the hospitals combined”
The resource is the latest in the QNI’s series of “transition” resources for nurses new to community nursing roles or who wish to enhance and update their knowledge on practice in specific settings.
