A letter from Charlotte McArdle, Chief Nursing Officer, DoH, thanking all those contributing to nursing and midwifery services across Northern Ireland
The NMC has published Emergency Standards for Nursing and Midwifery Education to allow more flexibility to be applied to the delivery of nursing and midwifery programmes during Covid19 situation.
To support student learning Northern Ireland is implementing Supporting Student Supervision and Assessment (SSSA) for all pre-registration programmes. View resources on NIPEC’s website aimed at supporting those undertaking the SSSA roles:

The Respiratory Competence Assessment Tool (R-CAT) has recently been updated and can now be printed off to complete in hard copy. Sign up or login to https://nipecportfolio.hscni.net/ and go to the competence assessment tool section where you can download the sections of the R-CAT that are relevent to you. You can still complete your self assessment online if that is easier for you.
