The supporting information on standards for student supervision and assessment are also online and will be updated regularly: https://www.nmc.org.uk/supporting-information-on-standards-for-student-supervision-and-assessment/

The new supervision standards will be rolled out at the same time as our new programme standards (see our website for more information: https://www.nmc.org.uk/standards-for-education-and-training/standards-framework-for-nursing-and-midwifery-education/). We’re planning to start the approval process for programmes delivering these new standards later this year. From 28 January 2019 all approvals will be made against these new standards.
