Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
This is a practice based module and the student will work under the direct supervision of a qualified mentor who will facilitate appropriate learning experiences and support the student to meet the module learning outcomes and to achieve their competencies (LO1-5). The student will work with a qualified mentor at least 40% of the time to develop their professional knowledge and skills in practice. The mentor will provide the student with guidance and feedback regarding progress towards and achievement of LOs 1-5 and the competencies. This will allow the student to reflect on their progress and the achievement of the learning outcomes.
The learning outcomes of this practice module are informed by the Nursing and Midwifery Council Standards for pre-registration nurse education and include practice competencies and essential skills clusters (NMC 2010) and are contained within the Scottish Ongoing Achievement Record. Normally, there will be 320 practice hours undertaken in this module.
