Allyson Lipp, S A Hyatt, L Brown

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article presents a brief history of national and regional changes in pre-registration nurse education together with an overview of how these were adopted in Wales. The development and functions of the practice facilitator role are described and the results of a small-scale audit are discussed. The audit sought to elicit if the training and support given to mentors via the practice facilitators were effective and how this strengthened the credibility of the assessment process of students in practice.
