The information hosted on this website is intended to assist our practice partners who support and assess student nurses and nursing associates on practice placements from the universities across London. Information is included in relation to the NMCs Future Nurse standards of proficiency for pre-registration nurses, standards for nursing associates and the SSSA (2018).

Sample versions of Pan London Practice Assessment Documents are included and can be downloaded, copied and used in training sessions. A range of resources have been developed in consultation with practice partners and AEIs to prepare staff for the roles outlined in the SSSA. These are designed to be used flexibly depending on the organisations needs and based on discussions with their local AEIs to agree the most appropriate approach.
