The Cheshire and Merseyside Practice Education Partnership (CMPEP), established in 2003, consists of four Academic Education Institutes and twenty-one placement organisations. All are stakeholders in nurse education. The group works across multiprofessional boundaries to ensure that all learners enjoy the best possible practice experience which is not dependant on the locality or the Academic Education Institute (AEI). The AEI’s provide nursing programmes to the same NMC standards in a complex shared practice circuit. Collaboration enables the streamlining of placements to enhance consistency in the learner’s experience which can improve patients’ outcomes. (DOH, 2013). The CMPEP shares innovative and best practice to inform emerging practice learning agendas. The group is both proactive and responsive to emerging regulatory bodies’ directives. A key strength is the ability to drive through change timely and effectively through extensive consultation. The successes of the group are many including the development of a joint Practice Assessment Record (PAR) for nursing across all fields’ benefitting learners and mentors and has been commended at validation by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and external examiners. The group has implemented across the region an online evaluation tool which enables the sharing of good practice, celebration of success and identification of areas to be strengthened. Learners receive feedback and see how their evaluation improves the placement experience for all. The CMPEP ensures that across the sub - region NMC standards are met and working collaboratively has produced core resources for mentor updates and workshops to meet the Standards for Supporting Learners in Practice (NMC, 2008). Regular meetings mean that the group has the ability to respond changes in the placement circuit, policy, procedure and professional directives. The CMPEP maximises the expertise of both academic and practice staff to ensure that the NMC Standards (NMC, 2010) for pre-registration nurses are met effectively.
