As members of the Midlands Yorkshire, North East and East of England Practice Learning Group (MYNEEPLG), which consists of 32 Approved Educational Institutions and our many NHS, Private, Independent and Vountary practice partners, we are proud to have been part of the largest collaboration, responding the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) Education Standards (2018).
In addition to the development of the Midlands, Yorkshire and East Practice Assessment Document (MYEPAD), to be used by all nursing students undertaking Future Nurse Curricula, the group has produced resources to support the transition of existing mentors under SLAiP (NMC 2008) to the New Standards for Student Supervision and Assessment in Practice (SSSA) (NMC 2018).
Locally, the University of York Practice Learning environments are shared with the Universities of Hull and Coventry. Therefore we have worked as a team to develop preparatory materials for both Mentor to Practice Assessor & Supervisor Transition and Practice Supervisor Preparation.
Mentor to Practice Assessor & Supervisor Transition
Preparation has made great progress since June 2018; anyone who still requires a transition workshop should look at the information and dates webpage for further information on forthcoming dates.
Practice Supervisor Preparation
Every registered nurse is expected to attend suitable preparation and act as a practice supervisor in accordance with the Code (NMC 2015, revised 2018). Please visit the webpage for further information on forthcoming dates.
Please note: Any suitably prepared registered healthcare professional is eligible to act as a practice supervisor to nurses and is very welcome to attend a preparation workshop. A certificate of attendance will be awarded.
Practice Assessor Preparation
A programme is currently being prepared and will be announced soon. It is anticipated this will commence around Easter time.
You will be required to attend two face to face classroom based study days and to complete a portfolio of evidence of practice based learning. The programme will be awarded pass/fail only, with no academic credits).
