Developing a 2030 Vision for Nursing


A project is underway across Scotland to develop a 2030 Vision for Nursing and NHS Scotland is looking for your input. If you are a nurse, student nurse, or represent nurses in Scotland they want to hear from you.

The goal is to produce a vision for maximising the nursing contribution to health and well-being. It will set out what nursing needs to look like by 2030 and capture the things we do well, along with the things that need to change and be done differently. You can contribute by going to the following website and completing the survey. See

Or by participating in a local engagement conversation. Health Boards, Universities and nursing stakeholders will be hosting local conversations so that you can have your say. More about these events to follow.

This work is being carried out in the context of the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s (NMC) Review of Standards for Education. Much of what is said on the future of nursing in Scotland via this project, will feed into the NMC review.
