NMC and CNOs launch professionalism guide

Chief Nursing Officers (CNOs), supported by the NMC, come together to set out what professionalism means for nurses and midwives.

Launched on International Nurses Day, Enabling professionalism in nursing and midwifery practice is a guide aimed at all nurses and midwives and sets out what ‘professionalism’ can look like in everyday practice.

It demonstrates how applying the values of the Code should be at the centre of all nursing and midwifery practice. For employers, it identifies key principles which will help them to provide practice environments that support and encourage professionalism among nurses and midwives.
