The NMC were set up by the UK government in 2002 to regulate nursing and midwifery professionals in the UK, the main aim of the NMC is the protection of the public. The NMC’s revised code became effective in 2015, the code sets out standards for good practice and behaviour that all nurses and midwives adhere to. The new Code puts patients and service users at the heart of practice with the intention of better protecting the public. (Nmc.org.uk, 2015). The SSSC provides both social care workers and employers with codes of practice, these codes provide guidance and standards to which workers and employers should meet. Forming from the Regulation of Care (Scotland) Act 2001, the SSSC was established with an aim of protecting the user of services and setting standards that professionals are required to adhere to.

In this Assignment, we will be looking at and discussing how the Nursing Midwifery Council’s Code (NMC) can guide the provision of person centred nursing care. What is the NMC’s Code? NMC Code is a list of professional requirements that which the nurses and midwives needs to adhere in order to practice in United Kingdom. This Code also helps the nurses and midwives to maintain their professional standards throughout their career. The Code is divided into four important sections. The sections are Prioritise people, Practise effectively and Preserve safety and Promote professionalism and trust (NMC 2015).
As a Registered Nurse is a crucial component to ensure that there is effective communication between the nurse and patient. As well as being respectful to the person’s dignity, culture, values, beliefs and rights.

Throughout personal professional development reflection is essential, allowing health care professionals to self-develop by revisiting events and analysing areas in which improvements and learning would ensure a positive impact on their future practice. The Nursing and Midwifery Council, (NMC, 2010) notes that all health care practitioners must be self-aware in their own values and principles which could affect their practice. Ensuring they maintain personal and professional development while learning through supervision, feedback and reflection.
As a healthcare professional a therapeutic relationship is fundamental in providing quality patient care. The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) National Competency Standards for a Registered Nurse (2006) emphasises Collaborative and Therapeutic relationships as one of the four main domains which make up the standards.

The specific attribute chosen is ‘establishes rapport with individuals/groups that enhances they ability to express feelings, fosters an appropriate context for expression of feeling.’ This attribute is crucial in having the guiding principals for a safe professional practice.
For this report I have been asked to compare and contrast the principles of regulations of two care professions. I have decided to choose Nursing and Social Work because I am currently training to be a nurse and I would like to see the difference between Nursing and Social Work education, training and codes of conduct as this is a field I don’t know much about.
This assignment will reflect on and critically analyse my personal and professional development in the domain of care management over the last three years. It will additionally outline how I plan to continue to develop in this domain once I have qualified as a registered nurse. My development so far will be analysed from the perspective of the skills, knowledge and values required of a registered nurse. Through this reflection I hope to confirm that my practice meets the standards for entry onto the nursing register as outlined by the nursing and midwifery council ((NMC) 2008).
In this assignment we will be discussing how the Nursing and Midwifery Council NMC (2015) guides nurses in the direction of good practice. Why we have the code? Who the code is for?

The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) published the expected standards for pre-registration midwifery education. They stated that Student Midwives are required to assist in the care and support of several women throughout their antenatal, intrapartum and postpartum period. This is achieved via the caseload holding scheme (Nursing and Midwifery Council, 2009). Midwifery led continuity of care models are described as care given during the antenatal, intrapartum and postnatal period from a known and trusted midwife in order to empower a woman to have a healthy pregnancy and birth (Sandall, Soltani and Gates, 2016). In September 2005 research was published supporting midwifery-led continuity of care, which they found was linked to a number of benefits for both mothers and babies, in contrast with obstetrically led and shared care (The Royal College of Midwives, 2014).
