Abstract

This project was carried out in order to identify good practice in Fitness to Practise (FtP) processes in pre-registration nursing education in Scotland. FtP touches upon a number of important issues, including the diversity of the nursing workforce, the accountability of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and the protection of the public, which is a key aspect of pre-registration nursing education and Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) monitoring processes. Through identifying and sharing good and best practice in FtP processes across the 11 HEIs in Scotland this project contributes to the development of robust FtP processes in pre-registration nursing programmes.
