5 Section 1 Introduction to Competency Booklet 5

6 Introduction The Competency Booklet (CB) has been devised to enable the assessment of student competence in clinical practice. The ethos of this approach is to enable students to deliver safe, high quality care in rapidly changing environments. In order to achieve this, students will develop the capacity to share their learning by providing evidence of increasing leadership, flexibility, autonomy and competence. During practice placements the student should identify opportunities for inter professional learning and gain feedback from the service user perspective. Best opportunities for inter professional learning arise from working together and in planning and evaluating the delivery of quality health and social care. The Competence Booklet must be used in conjunction with the Ongoing Achievement Record (OAR). The OAR is used in all placements and it provides an ongoing record of the student s clinical progress. The Competence Booklet records the achievement of the Domains and Competence statements from the Nursing Midwifery Council (NMC) (2010) Standards for Pre Registration Nursing Education. Alongside the Competence statements there are activity sheets which will contribute to the evidence of achievement. Hours worked in clinical practice are recorded within the CB and in NP6 only the personal learning portfolios will be recorded within the CB. The OAR should be used to record the following: The student and mentor will use the Ongoing Achievement Record to access and record: 1 Practice Experience details/ profile 8 SOM guidance and statement (NPE 6 only) 2 Pre-placement Learning Activities 9 HAI Collation document 3 Induction Documentation 10 Alternative Fields of Practice LOs Collation Table 4 Interim review of progress documentation 11 Authentic World (Safe medicate) Collation Table 5 Final interview and summative assessment of performance 12 Programme information and planner 6 Reflective Account 13 Action Plan(s) 7 Learning Development Plan 14 Additional Assessment Documentation 6

8 How to use the Competency Booklet (CB): Information for Mentors and Students The Nursing and Midwifery Council 1 (NMC) (2010) Standards for Pre-Registration Nursing Education determine the competencies to be achieved during the practice learning experiences. These standards determine what students must do and achieve during their Programme. The competencies are divided into four domains: Domain 1: PROFESSIONAL VALUES Domain 2: COMMUNICATION AND INTERPERSONAL SKILLS Domain 3: NURSING PRACTICE AND DECISION MAKING Domain 4: LEADERSHIP, MANAGEMENT AND TEAM WORKING Each domain has a generic standard for competence and a field specific standard for competence. Each domain is then further defined by a number of competencies (averaging between 7 and 10 per domain) each of which specifies certain knowledge, skills and values that, when achieved, will demonstrate Competence in that domain. Competence is defined by the NMC (2010 page 11) as the combination of knowledge and attitudes, values and technical capabilities that underpin safe and effective nursing practice and interventions. The following pages are separated into the four domains; the first page states the domain generic and field standard for competence as stated by the NMC (2010). Subsequent pages contain the competencies to be achieved within each domain. To enable the mentor to assess achievement of each competence, there are a number of learning outcomes listed (i.e. a, b, c, etc) below the competence statement against which the mentor will be able to determine by direct and indirect observation of the student, and discussion of aspects of practice, if these outcomes have been achieved. These learning outcomes should always be read in conjunction with the competence written above. One signature per competence statement per placement is required indicating if it has been achieved or not achieved. As part of the final assessment, the mentor should ensure that by the end of the placement those competency statements are signed as being achieved or not achieved. Assessment of competence should be a holistic and ongoing process. 8

9 Essential Skills Clusters (2010) The learning outcomes following each competence have been mapped to the Essential Skills Clusters (2010). The number that follows the learning outcome indicates the Essential Skills Cluster that is assessed within the learning outcome. This enables the mentor to determine if the Essential Skills Cluster (2010) statements, relevant to the developmental stage of the student (for example Progression Point One, Two, or entry to the Register) are being achieved. The Essential Skills Clusters to be achieved by each Progression Point are available from the Mentor Centre website and have been organised into Progression Points for ease of access: ( Activity Sheets At the end of each domain you will find Activity Sheets. It is indicated at the top of each activity sheet where these activities should be assessed (for example community experience or ward based experience) as some have a specific focus that can be best achieved within a certain clinical area. These activities allow the student, with increasing independence as they progress through their Programme, to demonstrate competence in a range of Essential Skills Cluster (2010) statements and domain competencies. The aim of these activities is to contextualise the competencies and domains into the challenges and interactions inherent within the role of a nurse. The activities are mapped to the domain that they follow in the Competence Booklet; however as these activities are directly observable nursing actions they will enable the mentor to assess a broad range of competencies within all four domains. For example, if an activity relates to the admission of a patient, competencies within Domain One can be assessed (e.g. did they treat the patient in a holistic and non judgemental manner domain one, competence 3), Domain Two (e.g. did they accurately record their findings domain two, competence 7) etc. Following the activity the mentor should discuss and explore with the student their rationale for their actions and the evidence-base guiding their actions. Within the activity sheets there are activities that will allow the mentor or student to ask a service user for feedback on the interaction. These Service User Feedback Forms follow the activities in Domain four and they contain advice and guidance regarding their use. Two service user feedback forms need to be completed by the end of each year of the Programme (i.e. 2 by the end of placements in year 1, a further 2 by the end of year 2 and a final 2 by the end of year 3). 9

10 Within the activity sheets there are activities that relate to inter professional experience/learning (IPE/L). There are two IPE/L activities within each Competence Booklet and these must be achieved by the end of the practice placements in the Competence Booklet. As the student progresses through the Programme these activities become more self-directed on the part of the student. Progression Points There are two Progression Points within the NMC (2010) Standards for Pre Registration Nursing Education, one at the end of year one and one at the end of year two. Progression in acquiring the competencies is mapped through the use of minimum progression criteria based on safety and values. The safety criteria comprise safeguarding and protection of all people of all ages, their carer s and their families and the values criteria comprise professional values, expected attitudes and the behaviours that must be shown towards people, their carer s, their families and others. At the point of entering Year 3 the student will have achieved all the necessary progression point criteria for their Year 1 and 2 clinical practice experience. Year Three - The Essential Skills Clusters (2010) have been incorporated into the learning outcomes within each domain and are indicated at the end of the outcome by the number to which it relates. The activities following each domain also incorporate the safety and values criteria necessary to assess. Achievement of the numeracy activities and ongoing observation of the student nurse performing calculations in the context of nursing practice demonstrate that the ESC s for numeracy in year 3 have been achieved. Completion of numeracy activities promotes knowledge of the ordering, storage and safe administration of medication and legal/ethical aspects of medicines management, allowing students to demonstrate the requirements for entry to the register have been met at the end of year three. Please refer to the OAR for more information. Students should also provide evidence of achievement of practice modules 5 and 6 from SafeMedicate (Authentic World an e learning package the students have to complete). A* next to an ESC number identifies a base line numerical skill. 10

11 Healthcare Associated Infection Cleanliness Champions Year One - Units 1 to 6 (inclusive) must be completed by the end of year one practice placements and once completed the mentor should sign off achievement within the OAR. Year Two Units 7 and 8 must be completed by the end of year two practice placements and once completed the mentor should sign off achievement within the OAR. Year Three Units 9 and 10 must be completed by the end of year three practice placements and once completed the mentor should sign off achievement within the OAR. Alternative Fields of Practice The NMC (2010) Standards for Pre Registration Nursing are aligned, where appropriate, with European Union (EU) Directive 2005/36/EC Recognition of professional qualifications and through achieving the requirements in Article 31 and annex V.2 allow registrants with NMC to have their professional qualification recognised throughout the European Union. Those registering in the adult field must meet EU requirements for training in general care and this includes theoretical and practical experience with service users across a range of client groups. For this reason, within each Competence Booklet, there are outcomes to assess knowledge, professional values and care delivery to a range of service users. These additional outcomes are classified into five categories: People with mental health needs; People with a learning disability; Needs of children and young people; Meeting the needs of maternal health, Meeting the needs of people with a long term condition, for example where cognitive impairment is a symptom. These outcomes should all be achieved by the end of the Programme and, the University will record the achievement of each outcome within the OAR. Therefore the mentor should review what has been achieved previously and seek, where appropriate, to encourage achievement of the remaining outcomes. Certain outcomes will be more achievable in certain practice areas therefore the following is recommended: Year Three Community learning disability, the needs of children and young people, maternal health Year Three Consolidation long term conditions, mental health and learning disabilities. Alongside these alternative fields of practice learning outcomes there are activity sheets within the Year One and Three Competence Booklets that enable adult student nurses to experience aspects of maternity care. To sign off these outcomes as achieved the mentor does not have to be a registrant within that alternative field of practice. 11

12 Year Three Competencies for Manual Handling Students are required to demonstrate their competence in practice in order to complete their practice modules. The students competency booklet follows the Nursing and Midwifery Council s Standards for Pre-Registration Nursing Education and is divided into four domains. Each domain has generic and field specific standards for competence. The competency booklet lists a number of specific competencies that will demonstrate the necessary skills, knowledge and values to demonstrate achievement in the specified domain. Manual handling spans the four domains, which are: Domain 1: Professional Values Domain 2: Communication and Interpersonal Skills Domain 3: Nursing Practice and Decision making Domain 4: Leadership, Management and Team Working. The learning outcomes for each competence are linked to the NMC s five essential skills clusters, of which the first two are relevant to manual handling. These are: Care, compassion and communication Organisational aspects of care Activity sheets are contained within the competency booklet. These activities contextualise the competencies to be achieved and assist the mentor to sign the student off as having attained the required standard within that activity. 12

13 Reporting a concern: Students are advised of their responsibility to report a cause for concern and are advised to follow the instructions and flow diagram in Section 6 (appendix 4). Students must respect the rights of a service user to decline care at all times. Throughout the Placement Please complete the induction documentation at the start of the placement and record the interim review of progress within the OAR. End of Placement Requirements At the end of each placement the mentor and the student need to ensure that all the relevant competencies and activities have been completed and signed. The final assessment comments relating to each Domain should be recorded within the OAR. Final Placement Requirements Sign Off Mentor In order to ensure public protection, the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) needs to be assured that students have been assessed and signed off as being capable of delivering safe and effective practice at the end of their programme. Following the publication of the NMC standards to support learning and assessment in practice (2006, 2008), a Sign-Off Mentor, who has met additional criteria, must make the final assessment of practice and confirm to the NMC that the required proficiencies for entry the register have been achieved. The final summative assessment of competence draws on evidence of assessment over a sustained period of time. Information made available to the SOM in the OAR allows Sign-Off-Mentors to view the content of all previous mentors assessments. This process allows the SOM to make a judgement on the student s suitability for entry to the register based on their progress over the entire period of their programme. Further information for Sign- Off-Mentors is and the associated documentation can be found in Section 4 of the OAR. 13

15 Section 2 Practice Information and Guidance 15

16 Practice Information/guidance Preparatory Work & Working Hours during Placement It is the student s responsibility to have undertaken the preparatory work required to facilitate the integration of the learning outcomes and competencies into practice. To maximise the student s learning experience, 2.5 hours per 40 hour working week are expected to be fulfilled as personal study time. This means that a total of 40 hours will be recorded by the University for all weeks completed on placement. Students however only attend 37.5 hours on placement, with the remaining 2.5 hours available for any theoretical work associated with the placement e.g. HAI Package or study relating to Alternative Fields of Practice. Students should only however record 37.5 hours (including Study Days) on the Record of Hours Card. The University will adjust the total post-submission. Shift pattern In the first week of practice, students are expected to work core shifts (37.5 hours per week - excluding meal breaks - over 5 days, working a 7.5 hour day). Students may thereafter work long days if this will benefit their learning experience and if (in the opinion of the Mentor / Clinical Manager) it is appropriate for the placement. Both the placement staff and the student MUST agree to this. If this is not suitable to either the student or the placement staff, the student will remain on core shifts. It is expected that every student work one week-end in every three (where week-end work is part of the placement nursing experience). Please note that a third year student is expected to undertake one full rotation of night duty and work one weekend in three (where available). Study Days In all placements, study days for reflection and addressing placement-related topics are integral to the learning process. These are programmed on specific days, as indicated on the student allocations, and are held in a University campus. Each accounts for 7.5 hours and should be recorded as UNI in your hours card. They are signed for on your Record of Hours Worked section of the card by the lecturer taking the reflection component of the study day, or established from the class attendance sheet for other types of class session. If Personal Study (not requiring attendance at University) is directed for a Study Day, University Administrative staff will take this into account when collating total hours. Only 7.5 hours per calendar week can normally be credited for Study Time, in order that the NMC s minimum total for practice is achievable during your Programme. 16

17 Annual Leave Students MUST NOT attempt to re-negotiate any period of annual leave that occurs during a placement. Changes to holiday periods can only be authorised through formal university channels and evidence to support any change will then be provided in writing. Failure to comply with this university policy will result in a Fail grade for the placement (see Programme Handbook for guidance). Sickness/Absence from placement Any absence from placement should be notified immediately to your clinical area as per University Absence Policy (see the on-line University mentorcentre for guidance). If telephoning to advise placement staff of intended absence, it may be a useful precaution to take a note of the person s name who received your call. You should advise placement staff of your intended date of return from sickness when known, or if your absence is expected to be prolonged. In the last case, your Year Group Leader should also be notified. You should indicate whole days of sickness absence on your hours card. A GP certificate is required for absences of more than a week. If the absence from placement is due to a Notifiable infection (for example Norovirus, Swine flu) you are required to be absent for a recommended period of time following resolution of the symptoms (for example 48 hours) before returning to placement. Please seek guidance from your placement area regarding local infection control policies and procedures. Lost hours can be retrieved later in your same placement by negotiation with your mentor, but you must not exceed 48 hours of work per calendar week (as stipulated by the European Working time Directive 93/104/EC); this restriction on maximum hours of work includes any alternative employment you may have out with your University Programme. Requests to make up hours beyond the end of your placement or to alter holiday dates must be made through your Group Leader/PDT/Cohort Leader. Further Information If further information/clarification is required on practical issues pertaining to the use of this document please if your query is student-centred, please contact the Practice Placement Link Lecturer or Practice Education Facilitator, or alternatively please the module leader or deputy identified in this booklet. 17

18 STUDENT INFORMATION - GENERAL GUIDANCE ON THE SUBMISSION OF PRACTICE LEARNING EXPERIENCE DOCUMENTATION The student must adhere to the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Care policy that states that the practice learning documentation: a) Must be submitted by 12 mid-day on the date specified by the placement module leader at either Sighthill Campus or Melrose Campus. For further information please refer to the Programme Handbook (available on the student portal). b) Should be submitted into the assignment box in a clear submission folder supplied by the student and signed in on the record of submission folder. Please clearly label with: Name, Reflective Group, Cohort and Placement Number i.e. NP 2 c) Must include all the completed paperwork for the Practice Learning Document as indicated below: o Competence Booklet (CB) 1. Prior to submission the student should ensure that all documentation within this booklet is completed and that pre-requisite photocopying is undertaken from the OAR and submitted with this document 2.

19 Non-submission Non-submission should be indicated to the module leader by e mail without delay and if instructed, the appropriate Mitigating Circumstances form should be completed as advised in the Programme Handbook. Failure to submit either OAR or Competence booklet by the due date has three consequences: 1. The student s progression within the programme may be adversely affected by the failure to submit due paperwork diligently. 2. Any practice fail will prevent a student being eligible for consideration of the class medal where a student may have earned this title through exceptional performance. 3. It affects the ability to be awarded a distinction Extension to submission deadline Under exceptional circumstances, an extension to the submission deadline may be authorised by the module leader. However, all requests must be accompanied by a valid extension request form (download form and guidance from Moodle). 19
