Nursing and Midwifery

The Practice Education Network

Who we are?

In NHS Scotland there is a unique network of practice education staff across NHS Education for Scotland (NES),NHS Boards and all of Scotland's universities that deliver nursing and midwifery education.  This includes practice education coordinators, practice educators, practice and care home education facilitators, practice teachers, supervising mentors, sign off mentors and mentors.

We all work together to develop resources and networks, enhancing the quality and range of practice- based learning for educators, mentors pre-registration nursing and midwifery students and other learners, helping them to provide safe, effective, person-centred quality care.

The NES Practice Education team works in partnership with colleagues from practice and education providers to create networks that support nurses and midwives across Scotland.

Within the networks there are a number of roles, each with something different to contribute.
