UWS Pre-reg Nursing Programme Webinar

Scottish Care were delighted to have Tom McEwan (Practice Learning & Partnership Lead – School of Health & Life Sciences, University of the West of Scotland) as a guest speaker on our latest webinar.

During this informative session, Tom 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.

He also highlighted a care home placement pilot the UWS are proposing 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. 

UWS are currently looking for care home providers around their 4 campus to nominate themselves to take part in this pilot. For those who are interested, there will VC meetings on Tuesday 11th February across the 4 different university campus. There will be an morning session at 10:00am – 12:00pm and an afternoon session at 1:00 pm – 3:00pm in the following rooms.
