Understanding Supervision and Assessment in Nursing

Understanding Supervision and Assessment in Nursing

November 2019 | 120 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

A practical guide for registered nurses in all fields, who are planning to undertake one of the new supervisor or assessor roles outlined in the latest NMC standards.

The book helps nurses prepare for the role of practice supervisor, practice assessor or academic assessor, by outlining what is expected in each of the roles, in accordance with the 2018 NMC standards, and explaining which competencies are needed to ensure success in the new supervisory and academic positions. These competencies include:

·         Understanding how students learn

·         Understanding how to empower nurses and why this is important

·         Learning to utilise student feedback to enhance your own development

·         Identifying the importance of including the participation of service users in nursing governance and quality

·         Ensuring compliance with all legal, regulatory, professional and educational requirements.

It will also be useful for experienced NMC mentors and practitioners looking to update their skills for the new NMC Educational Framework.

Chapter 1: Introduction to the 2018 NMC Standards for Nurses and Midwives
Chapter 2: Understanding the Different Roles Within Practice Education: Supervisors, Educators and Assessors
Chapter 3: Understanding the Curriculum and Supporting Students Through Assessment
Chapter 4: Enabling an Effective Learning Culture
Chapter 5: Educational Governance and Quality
Chapter 6: Student Empowerment
Chapter 7: Appendix 1: Standards Framework for Nursing and Midwifery Education
Chapter 8: Appendix 2: Standards for Student Supervision and Assessment

This book is good for a brief overview of the changes in the supervision and assessment of nurses since the NMC revisions. But I don't feel that it goes deep enough for me to recommend it to students or to adopt it to the course I was considering it for. It would be helpful if we were to run a course similar to that of the old mentorship qualification as it has useful activities in it that students could do.

I have recommended this to all colleagues to support the change to the new NMC Validated Nursing program. It is a fantastic support that explains the new roles that we as academics will be undertaking.
