PEP Supervision Models

JCU Nursing and Midwifery and our clinical partners use various PEP supervision models for students. Generally, level one and two PEPs are conducted via a clinical facilitator model whereby the facilitator, who is registered nurse/midwife works in a supernumerary capacity to supervise and assess a specific group of students within the clinical environment. For level three and four placements a preceptorship model is usually employed. This involves a registered nurse or midwife providing on-site individual clinical supervision on a 1:1 basis during the PEP.

All students undertaking a PEP with the Townsville Hospital and Health Service will be allocated to a designated ‘clinical partner’ registered nurse or midwife who will provide individualised clinical supervision during the PEP.

All your clinical partners, preceptors, facilitators and coaches are employed by the local health service.

It is important that you maintain profession and continuous communication with those involved in your PEP supervision. Your link to JCU is through the Academic Lead: Professional Practice, Academic Lead: Practice Integration and your subject coordinators.
