Education Career Pathway
Continuing education and training is essential to ensure nurses’ and midwives' ongoing competence and development, which in turn contributes to the provision of safe, effective and person-centred care. We therefore need to build and support our educators, providing relevant training, support and experience across the HSC in Northern Ireland.
Nurses and midwives on the Education Career Pathway have an overarching responsibility to develop and enhance the professional knowledge, clinical skills, and attitudes of students. Nursing and Midwifery Educators design, develop and deliver relevant programmes with the intent of ensuring nurses and midwives are equipped with the knowledge and skills to deliver quality services to our patients and clients. Their role often includes that of a teacher, mentor, counsellor, facilitator and coordinator.
Nursing and Midwifery Educators may be employed by an education provider or service provider organisation or a professional body to provide comprehensive educational opportunities. These educational experiences often provide nurses or midwives with opportunities to learn alongside other professionals.
Whether you are a nurse or midwife thinking about progressing further along the education career pathway, or wishing to incorporate education into your existing career, the links on the right will provide information on the next steps to take.
