As part of the RPEL process you must be able to evidence a minimum of 700 hours clinical practice prior to submission of your RPEL application for the MSc Nursing programme. Define the concept of professionalism and how this is demonstrated within nursing

Types of appropriate settings could include such places as hospitals, care/nursing homes, rehabilitation centres, specialised outpatient settings, minor injury units, GP settings.

Please note that this list is not exhaustive, and if clarification on a particular setting - and whether it would count - is required, advice should be sought from the Faculty at:

msc-rpel-submissions@edgehill.ac.uk.

Your hours must be verified by your current/previous employer/s, using the table in Appendix 5, which must be submitted on letter headed stationary, including their current contact details and position.

This verification may be completed by an Employer, Human  Resource or Payroll Department.

Appendix 7: Declaration of Academic Integrity/Malpractice

A breach of academic integrity rules, also referred to as academic malpractice, such as cheating, plagiarism and collusion, are taken very seriously by the faculty and the institution and procedures are in place to deal with such occurrences. Such behaviours may also lead to a referral to the university’s fitness to study and/or fitness to practice procedures as these practices represent examples of dishonesty and a lack of professionalism.

Malpractice is defined as an attempt to gain an advantage over other students using unfair and unacceptable methods.

Cheating: This relates to exams and includes, copying from another student, communicating with others in an exam, bringing unauthorised written material into an exam (paper or electronic). Reflecting of your own experiences in health and social care and utilising supporting literature, write a 1200-word essay to demonstrate knowledge of professional, legal, and ethical requirements within nursing.

Plagiarism: This includes verbatim copying of another’s work which can be published or unpublished, without proper acknowledgement of the source. Close paraphrasing without acknowledgement, unacknowledged quotations, the presentation of another’s ideas as your own, contract cheating through an essay mill.

Self-Plagiarism: It’s really important to note that you can plagiarise yourself. You can’t copy your work from one assessment to another without the consent of the YOS lead as all work you submit can only be submitted for one assessment.

Collusion: This is about helping someone else to complete their work which is then submitted by that person as their own work. It’s important to note that collusion also includes sharing your work with others even if you didn’t intend for them to copy your work.
