Immunology nursing competency framework

The British Society for Immunology Clinical Immunology Professional Network (BSI-CIPN) is delighted to present this competency framework for immunology nursing in the UK.

Working together as part of the BSI-CIPN, a project group of ten Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Nurse Specialists and Nurse Consultants working in Immunology around the UK have written this framework outlining the breadth of the Immunology nurse‚Äôs role. It covers the core skills and knowledge expected of an immunology nurse working towards expert practice, from newly entering into the speciality to undertaking nurse-led clinics.

This document was first published in May 2023. A review will take place five years after the date of publication.
