Nursing 2030 vision

The Chief Nursing Officer's long term strategy to shape the future of the nursing workforce.

4 Next Steps …

It is important that having set out our Nursing 2030 Vision, we also establish a mechanism for delivering on its ambitions and aspirations.

Some of the issues the Vision has identified are already being addressed. Others can be actioned relatively quickly. Yet others reflect deeper cultural issues that require sensitivity, collaboration, greater understanding and - crucially - time. All of the issues, however, will be reflected in a detailed action plan, with national oversight. The action plan will be our mechanism for setting out how we intend to make the ideas in the Vision a reality over the short, medium and long terms for the people of Scotland and their nurses.
