Having mapped out placements there is the opportunity to undertake all relevant placement experiences as well as meet EU directives.
Learning and assessment
The programme is framed around four core concepts:
- direct clinical/patient care
- leadership and collaborative practice
- improving quality
- developing practice and developing self and others
These are common to all fields of nursing and represent the NMC domains (NMC 2010). The core concepts form a framework of key content which is revisited across the three years, progressing from an introduction and broad understanding of concepts, to complex in-depth application of concepts applied to nursing.
The intention is to facilitate your development by introducing you to the fundamental knowledge and skills centred on core and field subjects required to meet the health needs of all patient/client groups, whilst ensuring you develop the specific in-depth knowledge and skills to meet the complex health needs of people from your chosen field of practice. However, you will not only learn about and become competent nursing patients/clients in your own field of nursing but you will also become confident in nursing patients/clients who have an additional condition related to other fields of nursing. For example; learning to work with patients/service users with problems associated with your own field of nursing but who also have a learning disability.
