Slide 9 Feedback from mentors [Survey Monkey] Its very repetitive. Some of the assessments are not easy to understand. There are far too many words used to describe what the mentor is being asked to assess. Not very specific, and not all relevant to the practice area. Not really geared up to community placement Slide 10 Feedback from mentors [Survey Monkey] There are aspects to the PAD documents that need changing. Very wordy and not very supportive of flexible learning. Using 3 universities with different PAD assessment is confusing and poses the questions that each does not trust the others tool of assessment. Often things are missed related to basic nursing care - pressure area care, nutrition (in more detail) dementia, dignity in care. If a student is with you for 5 weeks by the time one is getting to know them we are expected to completed a midpoint interview- perhaps this should be a review. Slide 11 Feedback from mentors [Survey Monkey] Specific competency, knowledge and skills exams. These should be substantive and progression / continuation on the course contingent upon passing these. A nurse MUST be able to assess a patient using a validated model of nursing. MUST be able to write a care plan. I'm seeing many third year students who still don't possess these skills. Each year should have specific skill sets concerned with patient care organisation and management. The coordination and prioritisation of the care of a group of (minimum 5) patients should be an essential criteria for qualification. Student nurses must have this capability and demonstrate knowledge and skills in care coordination in order to register. Shift co-ordination and leadership competencies must be part of the third year tool. Slide 12 Feedback from students Survey Monkey More skills should have been added on the practice documents to help us become more competent in certain skills. e.g. observation covers many different skills and also I have seen students such at other university have to complete many skills which covers in observations. they need to be signed off with little skills such as blood pressure, ECG, catheter etc. Which is excellent as it is more specific as mentors also have to observe students perform and pass that skill. However in our document it is not like that. Slide 13 Feedback from students [Survey Monkey] Some mentors are not comfortable with the book. They usually argue that it changes every year, and the book is not explicit on the expected student level. Therefore mentors seems to base the assessment on their own expectations on student Having one document for 3 years will mean it is in a complete state by the time it is submitted. Not to mention how complicated things would get if it got lost. Grading criteria needs to be clear and consistent throughout the document. Slide 14 Why?
