The Whitepost Health Care Group offers Supervised Practice Courses for qualified Nurses who have obtained their training in countries outside of the European Union.
What is Supervised Practice?
It is for Nurses who have been asked by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) to undertake a supervised practice placement for between 3 and 6 months. The purpose of the supervised placement is to enable the practitioners to become familiar with NMC code of conduct, legal issues related to professional practice in the United Kingdom. Also to assess and develop the clinical, communication and linguistic skills required by the NMC.
The address of the NMC is:
Nursing & Midwifery Council
23 Portland Place
Tel: 0207 333 9333
The course is linked with The City University London therefore the programme is determined by them. You will work in a Nursing Home approved by the NMC for your training. The classroom teaching and reflective learning is provided by the University at a venue of their choice. The final professional assessment is carried out by the University. Please note the University charges for the provision of its services
The programme runs over 13 or 26 weeks.
