The NHS long term plan sets an ambitious vision for the future and is dependent on digital technologies and improved use of data to respond to growing demand and provide the best, most efficient care for patients.
Digital technologies and data are enablers for professionalism, support for practice, research, education and leadership. The nursing and midwifery professions must now actively take forward digital transformation, allowing patients, nurses and midwives to benefit from the latest digital systems and technology.
The FNF is now beginning to develop digital nurse and midwifery leaders who can drive the information and technology transformation of the NHS, a key aim to ensure they become the pipeline of aspirant Chief Nurse Information Officers in the NHS.
This scholarship is sponsored by Ruth May, CNO England. The scholarship improvement project must be aligned to her priorities and the objectives of the future CNIO England in collaboration with NHSX.
