The University of the West of Scotland (UWS) are proposing a care home placement pilot around their campus areas (Ayr, Lanarkshire, Paisley and Dumfries). This includes care home providers that don’t currently support students but are keen to. This pilot will help support independent care home providers to become ready to support students.
Tom McEwan (Practice Learning & Partnership Lead – School of Health & Life Sciences, UWS) kindly hosted a webinar for us which discussed this pilot project, and provided an update about the new NMC standards for student nurses which will go live from September 2020, as well as their new Pre-Reg Nursing Programme. A recording of this webinar and Tom’s presentation slides can be found here.
For those who are interested, there will VC meetings on Tuesday 11th February across the 4 different university campus. There will be a morning session at 10:00am – 12:00pm and an afternoon session at 1:00 pm – 3:00pm in the following rooms.
