AbstractThe role of the practice teacher is pivotal in supporting the development of students undertaking Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) approved Specialist Community Public Health (SCPHN), School Nursing programmes. It is a mandatory requirement that students of school nursing are supported and assessed by a named practice teacher, who must have met the requirements defined within the practice teacher standard (NMC, 2008). In the third article of this series Sarah Sherwin and Liz Stevenson discuss the role of the practice teacher in assessing the learning needs of students on placement with the school health team.
