How much do you know about the Nursing associate role?

This Guardian article is on the nursing associate role which is designed to bridge the gap between a care assistant and a registered nurse.

Some of you may remember this as an Enhanced care worker role discussed three years ago. My question hasn't changed since then; does this mean that someone who is in a registered Nursing home receiving care from a Nursing Associate won't get the FNC payment?

Skills for Care have a series of videos explaining this new role and the potential opportunities for those who work as Carers
