Royal College of Nursing IL standards

The UK's Royal College of Nursing has just published: Finding, using and managing information: Nursing, midwifery, health and social care information literacy competences. "These competences complement the RCN's clinical competence framework, helping nurses, midwives, health care assistants and nursing students develop their skills in using information and knowledge and apply this to their practice. Finding, using and managing information is relevant for practitioners and managers involved in evaluating professional standards, for students, tutors and for information managers in higher education and the workplace. They are also intended to inform team and individual learning and development." You can download them at The RCN has also signposted some relevant resources at: (look at the links under "Learning guides and training" in the menu on the left side, the links in the middle are for RCN members)
