Who identifies who the practice supervisors are?
The AEI, with its practice learning partners, is responsible for identifying which professionals may be suitable practice supervisors for nursing and midwifery students in a practice learning environment. This can be done continuously throughout the student’s programme.
Factors that AEIs and practice learning partners should take into account when identifying practice supervisors include:
- public protection
- the relevant standards as detailed below
- student learning needs, and
- programme outcomes.
The AEI and its practice learning partners should be able to demonstrate that their decisions uphold public protection and enable students to meet their learning outcomes.
