QA Assessment - What you need to know to complete Part B

This section applies to you if you have been selected to complete Part B.

For Part B: Practice Assessment, you are required to complete the Practice Assessment template, which contains both the learning plan (Section 1) and the Code of Conduct practice activity (Section 2). You must complete and submit both Section 1 and 2. Nurse Practitioners are also required to complete a case example.

The following resources are available to support you in successfully completing your requirements for Part B:
