Social care nursing placements offer a wealth of opportunity with employers and practice learning partners playing a key role in supporting students to reach their full potential in developing their knowledge and skills within the learning environment.
With an ongoing demand for nurses and nursing associates within the sector there is a need to increase placement capacity. This guidance is aimed at employers and those considering hosting students to help them navigate the process of linking in with higher education institutions and highlights the benefits that there are for employers in hosting students.

regional integrated care boards
Nursing and Midwifery Council and partner agencies who are committed to increasing placement capacity within social care.
