A time of change
Bashyr Aziz. Occupational Health. Sutton: Feb 2005. Tomo 57, Nº 2; pg. 12, 1 pgs
Resumen
When the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) was established in April 2002, it abolished a separate part of the register for health visitors (HVs). As HVs were involved in practice that involved responsibility for the health of populations (as well as individuals), a new third part wasadded to the existing parts for nurses and midwives, to recognise the special nature of this public health role. Nurses in other specialist areas contributing to public health were also included on the new part of the register. The new part of the register, for specialist community public health nurses, came into effect on 1 August 2004, and all existing HVs immediately transferred over. Occupationalhealth nurses, whose OH qualification is on record at the NMC, will also migrate over to the new register, as will school nurses with a recordable qualification, regardless of whether the specialist qualification is at certificate, diploma, degree or higher level. What is important is not the academic level of the qualification but that it is on record.

When the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) was established in April 2002, it abolished a separate part of the register for health visitors (HVs). As HVs were involved in practice that involved responsibility for the health of populations (as well as individuals), a new third part was added to the existing parts for nurses and midwives, to recognise the specialnature of this public health role. Nurses in other specialist areas contributing to public health were also included on the new part of the register.
The new part of the register, for specialist community public health nurses, came into effect on 1 August 2004, and all existing HVs immediately transferred over. Occupational health nurses, whose OH qualification is on record at the NMC, will alsomigrate over to the new register, as will school nurses with a recordable qualification, regardless of whether the specialist qualification is at certificate, diploma, degree or higher level. What is important is not the academic level of the qualification but that it is on record.
During the transition period, graduates with specialist practice awards (minimum degree level) from institutionsteaching OH specialist practice will be eligible to go on to the new part of the register. However, during this period (the length of which has yet to be announced), institutions will be expected to develop and obtain approval from the NMC the programmes that will incorporate standards of proficiency in public health. Once the transitionary period ends, institutions without approval will not be able tohave their graduates placed on the third part of the register.

Although specialist practitioners in OH can currently migrate over to the new part of the register, aspiring OH nurses or their tutors must not assume that they will be able to continue to do this in future without undertaking a specialist programme incorporating public health.
