Student Supervision

Standards for Student Supervision

Practice Supervisor Presentation

This presentation is recommended for all health and social care staff including nurses working in general practice. Following the presentation (and if necessary, reading the accompanying materials below), staff will be able to act as Practice Supervisors for nursing students and nursing associates. If registered nurses have already completed a mentorship qualification, by undertaking this training, and they feel competent to do so, they may act as Practice Assessors.
