Nursing Practice Learning
Caring for people is not easy and although you can gain a lot of knowledge from the classroom, by working in practice, with real patients and other healthcare professionals, you will develop the skills and experience to become a competent nurse.
Practice learning environments
Practice learning accounts for 50% of all courses leading to registration as a nurse.
Learning in practice occurs in selected wards, departments, schools, health centres, primary healthcare teams and other settings within the local NHS and independent healthcare sector and the social service sector.

All staff and students within the School have a clear responsibility to escalate any concerns that they have relating to practice learning environments.
The following guidelines will enable you to alert the relevant staff and practice environments to ensure that all issues of concern relating to practice learning are dealt with promptly and effectively.
