The NMC Standards for Student Supervision and Assessment (2018) require that registrants who facilitate learning and assess students must be prepared for these roles.
In collaboration with our placement provider partners and the University of Essex, we have developed workshops to prepare you to become a practice supervisor and, if requested to do so by your employer, a practice assessor.
A practice supervisor is a registered healthcare professional who supports and supervises students, providing feedback on their progress towards, and achievement of, proficiencies and skills (NMC, 2018).
A practice assessor is a NMC registrant who conducts assessments to confirm student achievement of proficiencies and programme outcomes for practice learning (NMC, 2018).
Both will work closely together and staff will begin to transition to these new roles from September 2019.
The workshops will also be suitable for Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registered ODPs who wish to support student nurses and midwives as a practice supervisor. The Practice Assessor workshop will prepare registered ODPs to assess student ODPs.
The course is divided into two parts, at the end of which you will be able to generate and download a certificate of completion.
Practice supervisors will only complete part one.
Practice assessors will need to complete both parts.
