The first 1,000 trainee nursing associates started their training programme in January, and the second 1,000 are due to start in April.
UNISON has set up a Facebook group for trainee nursing associates. It is a closed group so only verified members can join. We hope it will provide a safe space where UNISON trainee nursing associates can interact with each other, and we can engage with them as a group on key issues such as plans for forthcoming NMC regulation.
If you are on the nursing associate programme, please use this link to our nursing associate webpage: https://www.unison.org.uk/at-work/health-care/representing-you/nursing/nursing-associates/ From here you can join the closed Facebook Page.
If you are on the programme please also inform your local Branch that your role has changed so we can update the UNISON database.
