In 2018, the Nursing and Midwifery Council published several documents relating to new standards of proficiency for registered nurses, standards for student supervision and assessment, and standards for non-medical prescribing programmes. In addition, the Code of conduct for nurses and nursing associates was updated. This article explains the changes that have been made both to pre-registration student supervision and assessment and to non-medical prescribing programmes, and discusses how this may affect diabetes specialist nursing services. These changes need to be implemented by September 2020.
