star this property answer text <p>Health visitors are part of the nursing profession and regulated by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). Health visitors are qualified and registered nurses or midwives who have undertaken an approved training programme in Specialist Community Public Health Nursing - Health Visiting.</p><p>The NMC has the general function of promoting high standards of education and coordinating all stages of education to ensure that health visitors are equipped with the knowledge, skills and attitudes essential for professional practice, including continuous professional development (CPD). The NMC set the standards of education and training for the nursing profession expected at undergraduate and postgraduate level and approve curricula set by individual higher education institutes. In so doing, they set out the knowledge, skills and behaviours that both postgraduate and undergraduate nurses must be able to demonstrate.</p><p>CPD is a term used to describe a number of different training and development activities which may be required for the purposes of professional practice in the National Health Service. The NMC requires 35 hours of CPD relevant to scope of practice in the three year period since registration was last renewed, or joining the register.</p><p>The NMC are in the process of rewriting their standards. For example, in the new pre-registration nursing standards the NMC specify that registrants must have proficiencies in identifying risk and vulnerability, in all settings and across the lifespan and would expect post-natal depression to be included in the curriculum.</p>
