Course overview

This work-based learning module is designed to offer a flexible student-centered and practice-related approach to learning; it will enable participants to gain academic credit for knowledge and skills acquired and developed in the workplace.

'The Nightingale is a dedicated pioneer, innovative with an enquiring mind who inspires others and goes above and beyond the call of duty'. (Next generation Nightingale working definition, GSTT 2017). This module is part of the Nightingale Nurse Award being offered by Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust (GSTT) as a way of recognising individual excellence amongst their nursing and midwifery staff. The module will be based on work-based learning principles, allowing staff to earn academic credit for work undertaken as part of their application for the Nightingale Award. The module assessment will take the form of a portfolio of evidence mapped against the Nightingale Pledge created by the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery, King's College London and GSTT Trust Values. The portfolio assessment entries will enable staff to explore and critically review aspects of their practice relevant to their application for the award.
