Dear CCNA Members and all Children’s Cardiac Nurses working in the UK
We would like to invite you to particpate in an online survey which aims to explore children’s cardiac nursing roles in the UK.
We are aware that you may have been involved in peer reviews recently and may have already been asked for some of this information. However, the purpose of this project is to explore the implementation of key nursing roles within Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) services across the UK and whether they meet the CHD standards (NHSE 2016) and the RCN/CCNA guidance (Gaskin et al 2014). The main aim being to update the RCN/CCNA Core competency document ensuring that it is fit for purpose and fit for practice.
Secondary objectives include:
Explore nurses’ perceptions of their role
Explore the consistency of role descriptors for key roles (Lead Nurse, Nurse Educator, Nurse Specialists)
Explore the implementation of Advanced Clinical Practice roles and Consultant Nurse roles
Explore the implementation of Nurse Research roles in CHD (Reader/Professor)
