Moseley, Michelle ORCID: 2018. Fit to practise? Assessment of student specialist community public health nurses. Journal of Health Visiting 6 (7) , pp. 340-346. 10.12968/johv.2018.6.7.340

A particular challenge for specialist community public health nursing (SCPHN) programme leaders is developing assessment and evaluation processes for students. This article outlines a strategy of combining two competency frameworks for use as part of the SCPHN course at a higher education institute. The frameworks are required to assess students' attitudes, skills and knowledge in relation to this specialist field of nursing practice. Combining the strengths of two different frameworks has the potential to enable practice teachers to assess and evaluate students developmentally. Assessing a student's ability, knowledge, attitudes and skills has proven to be successful using this approach in Wales and is featured in the All Wales Clinical Portfolio (used at four Welsh universities). Students can reflect on and in practice while achieving specific learning outcomes, and practice teachers can use the the frameworks to assess competence and proficiency effectively.
