Created by Becky, Nurse Bec Supplies:

I’ve been qualified over 14 years and as a former clinical educator and deputy sister I’ve supported many students in my time. I know what it’s like being on placement as both a former student and assessor. 

I wanted to provide you with not only useful information to refer to during your placement, but I also wanted to share with you some of my hints and tips from my experience too in the hope it will help make your placement a good learning experience”. 

It’s the perfect complement to go with the Placement Pals (books to document your journey and learning got each placement) available on the website. 

And it’s pocket size too (A6) perfect to take with you on placement!
