Overview

Interpreting Professional Self-Regulation analyses the contribution made by the UKCC to the development of the nursing profession in this country over the last 30 years.It details the key issues the council grappled with during this time and provides in-depth analyses of the complexity of these issues.
There is a general consensus that the current view of nursing's regulatory body will culminate in a major shake up of the way the nursing profession is governed and in which the UKCC will be radically transformed. This publication of the history of the UKCC will mark the close of a very significant period in nursing's history and the opening of wider debates about ensuring the safety of the public through regulation of health professionals.
This is an important text for all those who teach on professional and policy issues in nursing, giving them a factual background that has never been brought together before, enabling them to bring discussion of post-registration education, discipline and other professional matters more firmly into the curriculum.
