The Knowledge Network is the national knowledge management platform delivered by the NHS Education for Scotland Knowledge Services Group. It encompasses and supersedes the original NHS Scotland e-Library and provides high quality knowledge support for health and social care.

The NMC Code presents the professional standards that nurses and midwives must uphold in order to be registered to practise in the UK. Effective from 31 March 2015, this Code reflects the world in which we live and work today, and changing roles and expectations of nurses and midwives. It is structured around four themes – prioritise people, practise effectively, preserve safety and promote professionalism and trust. Developed in collaboration with many who care about good nursing and midwifery, the Code can be used by nurses and midwives as a way of reinforcing their professionalism. Failure to comply with the Code may bring their fitness to practise into question

The Career Development Framework will help you to assess learning needs and plan for your continuing development if you are a nurse, midwife or allied health professional.

If you are a Practitioner you can use the framework to:

  • guide your professional development moving from newly qualified novice practice, towards experienced, expert practice.
  • continuing to develop within your current level of practice

If you are a Manager the framework will help you to:

  • support discussions that take place as part of professional development reviews.
  • inform development opportunities.
  • inform succession planning.
  • support service redesign and skill mix.


The Advanced Nursing Practice Toolkit is a UK wide repository for consistent, credible and helpful resources relating to advanced practice.  It supports ongoing work across the sector to enhance understanding of this role, benchmarking of this level of practice and its application to specific roles across clinical practice, research, education and leadership.
