The NNA will guide all nurses in identifying their professional capabilities development gaps and provide a list of relevant courses that prepares nurses to be responsive in meeting the evolving healthcare needs of our population. Nurses can be assured that their skills attained through attending courses accredited by the NNA will be recognised and valued across healthcare institutions, as they progress or move into different care settings in their career, be it from the acute to community care sector, or vice versa.
Eventually, as the NNA grows the repertoire of courses it accredits, including workplace-based courses or programmes, nurses from all healthcare settings can have increased access to programmes and courses that may otherwise not be available within their own healthcare institutions.
Nurse educator manpower can also be streamlined as courses need not be duplicated unnecessarily. Where courses are in demand, course providers can better target their educational programmes to meet the demands accordingly.
