Practice Educators (PEs) are a national network of nursing and midwifery registrants who:
We are part of the NES NMAHP Practice Education infrastructure collaborating with regional boards and other healthcare organisations.
Being a PE
We are hosted in the 14 regional health boards either in full-time or part-time roles and are referred to collectively as the NES Practice Educator National Network (NESPENN).
Our aim is to support the Scottish nursing and midwifery workforce in their professional learning and development. This contributes to the delivery of safe, effective and person-centred care, to ensure best outcomes for patients.
Practice Educators work collaboratively alongside clinical and education colleagues within the regional health boards and with strategic stakeholders such as the Scottish Government and the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
We work with Practice Education Leads, Practice Education Facilitators (PEFs), Care Home Education Facilitators (CHEFs) and Allied Health Professional practice education leads (AHP PELs).
NESPENN enables us to collaborate effectively, share experience and expertise, and support key national, regional and local developments and initiatives.
