The Queen’s Nursing Institute has published new Standards of Education and Practice for Community Practice Teaching.

The new Standards were developed over 2021-22 involving stakeholders from a wide range of key organisations, listed in the appendices to the Standards.

The new Standards comprise a set of benchmarks and guidance outlining the transition from a Practice Supervisor and Practice Assessor role to that of a Community Practice Teacher, the attributes required for community practice teaching, and the support and educational framework needed for learners undertaking the SPQ/SCPHN. The Standards align with the four pillars (domains) of advanced practice of the Health Education England Advanced Practice Toolkit Framework.

Leading stakeholders including Experts by Experience, Higher Education course/programme leads, practitioners and commissioners from all four countries of the UK have contributed to the project through a Standards Advisory Group, Chaired by Professor John Unsworth OBE, QNI Chair of Council. The project was led and managed by Angie Hack QN.
