How do I become a GPN and what do I need to become a GPN?
You must be a qualified and registered adult, child, mental health or learning disability nurse to work as a GPN in general practice. You’ll also either need to undertake further training and education or be willing to after being appointed. Some employers may ask for knowledge or experience in specific areas, e.g. health promotion or working with patients with long-term conditions. You may be offered the opportunity to undertake an academic General Practice Nurse programme at a local university.
