Performance Management Survey

Survey Information

The pre-registration education quality assurance survey is a key part of the performance management process.

The survey gathers views of 3rd year student nurses and midwives, their mentors and the charge nurses regarding the educational environment in practice and the preparedness of students on completion of their programme, for their role as registered practitioners.

The survey takes place currently on an annual basis and is 'live' for three months from the beginning of February each year. The data is then collated and reports compiled for use in the annual reviews with the Higher Education Institutions in July.

The survey was revised in 2012 and the information was gathered using a self-completion electronic questionnaire. In addition, an in-depth analysis took place for the qualitative comments to further assist with a deeper understanding of the issues that were important to the respondents.
