Training and development experiences of nursing associate trainees based in primary care across England: a qualitative study

CONCLUSION: This study raises important issues for trainee nursing associates, which may influence the recruitment and retention of the nursing associate workforce in primary care. Educators should consider adjustments to how the curriculum is delivered, including primary care skills and relevant assessments. Employers need to recognise the resource requirements for the programme, in relation to time and support, to avoid undue stress for trainees. Protected learning time should enable trainees to meet the required proficiencies.PMID:37114453 | DOI:10.1017/S1463423623000221
