Practice learning


This section outlines the way in which the practice elements of the programme are organised. It reviews the practice learning requirements specified by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (2010) and you have the opportunity to look at key documents used to ensure that your student can access the learning in practice that will be needed to meet these requirements.


At the end of this part of the induction you should be able to:

  • explain how your student can achieve a breadth of experience in practice, whilst remaining in his/her usual workplace setting, which will be the core practice-base
  • discuss the purpose of complementary/contrasting practice learning experiences
  • state the importance of ensuring that your student’s supernumerary status is maintained, whilst learning in practice.
