This portal is designed for all supervisors and assessors of nursing students at Anglia Ruskin University.
It will provide you with resources and information to help you successfully support, supervise and assess nursing students within the practice setting.
If there is any information that you think would be useful to add, please contact Mary Edmonds, Director of Practice. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is your responsibility as a registered professional to inform Anglia Ruskin University of a student's sickness or absence and to ensure this is recorded and signed on the student's timesheet.
The University has a duty to inform the professional body of the exact hours a student has experienced in the clinical area and it is therefore important that accurate records are kept.
Please inform the University of a student's absence by emailing email@example.com or calling 01245 684816, stating: student name, student ID number, clinical site, reason for absence.
If a student has to make up time this should be done at the end of the programme in communication with the personal tutor/course lead and Practice Assessor and Education Lead from the organisation they are placed.
If a student has more than 40 hours to make up at the end of the programme this will usually need an additional period of placement and can be on their final placement, if agreed (for apprentice students agreement needs to be sought from the employer). The decision will be documented by the Course Lead and the Practice Team informed who will confirm agreement with the Education Lead from the organisation the student is placed. These hours cannot be made up by working additional shifts during standard placements, in accordance with the EU working directives.
