Strand 7: Partnership working
The evidence of how important it is to engage students in their own leaning and assessment is clear (Healey, Flint and Harrington, 2014). The use of service users when designing curriculum and practice documents is also recommended (Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) 2010). Clinical staff that act as mentor for students also express that they should be involved in the production of the assessment documents that they complete with students when asked at mentor updates.
Around the world Student Nurses and Midwives are mentored by clinicians and although it is recommended that they are involved in curriculum design (NMC 2010), there is no evidence to suggest that this happens.
