The nursing associate role provides an exciting opportunity for primary care settings – such as a GP practice – to develop and strengthen their workforce. It’s a new career pathway for healthcare assistants to become registered professionals. Depending on their skills and experience, trainee nursing associates and qualified nursing associates can take on tasks and responsibilities to alleviate pressure on registered nurses. They can also provide additional clinical leadership in a GP practice if required.
We are rolling out another cohort of Nursing Associate Apprenticeships delivered by University East London.

TNA & NA added to ARRS
In the most recent NHS England and NHS Improvement Primary are Bulletin (18th September 2020 Issue 67) it was highlighted that both Trainee Nursing Associates and Nursing Associates will be added to the Additional Roles and Reinbursement Scheme as separate reimbursable roles, please see information quoted below:
“Ed Waller and Nikki Kanani’s letter of 11 August highlighted the criticality of PCN recruitment, and our intention to include nursing associates within the ARRS from 1 October to support this. The amended DES delivers on this commitment, with nursing associates reimbursed up to a maximum annual reimbursable amount of £29,135 per FTE (subject to the role meeting the minimum requirements set out in the DES). In addition, to provide further flexibility for PCNs, we are also introducing trainee nursing associates as a separate reimbursable role. Trainee nursing associates will be reimbursed up to a maximum annual amount of £25,671 per FTE (also subject to the role meeting the minimum requirements set out in the DES).”
