  • Description
    [Excerpt from author]This material looks in detail at the preparation of a Nursing Act and is designed to offer guidance on the process of turning policy change in nursing into meaningful and effective legislation. A Nursing Act is required to establish an effective statutory regulatory system (i.e. a system underpinned by legislation) for nursing. This document has been prepared primarily to assist countries/jurisdictions who are either preparing legislation relating to nursing for the first time, or revising their existing legislation. It is intended to be used, in the main, by nursing professionals who may not be familiar with the process of making or changing legislation.
