A draft ANNP capability framework is now available for review on the BAPM website.
The purpose of this framework is to give Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioners (ANNP) a career pathway; whether that is in a tertiary level neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), local neonatal unit (LNU), special care unit (SCU) or within the transport setting. This model makes clear how ANNPs can progress outside the limitations of the clinical rota by setting out a variety of career development pathways.
BAPM President Helen Mactier said, "As neonatal care develops, so must our staff. Employers and managers need to provide individualised opportunities for career advancement and seek to support those ANNPs who wish to take on further responsibility. We hope that this Framework will provide clarity around roles and responsibilities of ANNPs at varying levels, ensuring consistency of practice for all, and clarifying options for personal development."
BAPM is seeking member views on the draft document before publishing a final version. To reply to the consultation please complete the feedback form and return to the BAPM Office before the deadline.
Deadline: 17 December 2020
