Nursing Associate & Trainee Nursing Associate

The nursing associate is a new support role in England that bridges the gap between healthcare support workers and registered nurses to deliver hands-on, person-centred care. Nursing associates work with people of all ages in a variety of settings in health and social care, including general practice.

They can help by:

  • Carrying out health checks
  • providing healthy living advice such as stopping smoking and weight loss
  • tending to dressings and stitch removal
  • taking blood samples
