In 2013, the first edition of the Competency Framework for Adult Endocrine Nursing was published. It was created by the Society’s Nurse Committee in response to an absence of set training in adult nursing for the specialty. Enhanced and republished as the second edition in 2015, not only has this proved immensely valuable in the UK, but it has also been acclaimed worldwide by our endocrine nurse colleagues. It will soon be available in a total of eight languages other than English.

The Nurse Committee has been working on a new edition of the Competency Framework. The levels of experience have been expanded to five, from Novice to Expert. Additionally, a larger number of conditions will be covered.

Following member feedback, this third edition has been created as an online learning platform, to allow nurses to track their progress, access training collateral and, in a new development, connect with more experienced nurses in other centres around the UK. These colleagues will act as mentors and provide support. Initially, it will only be available to members of the Society.

Sandoz has kindly provided funding to support this initiative, which was launched at SfE BES 2022.
