What are we supervising when we provide regulatory supervision?
When you provide regulatory supervision for a student’s activities, you are responsible for:
This applies whether the student is a learner or employed student nurse (ESN).
You are not responsible for the student. Both you and the student are accountable for your own decisions and actions. Depending on their role, students will also have to practice within the polices and expectations set by their education program and placement agency or employer. Students in an ESN role must also meet the principles of the Employed Student Registrant practice standard.
You’ll find more information about the regulatory supervision process and your responsibilities in the Regulatory Supervision of Nursing Student Activities practice standard.
