Quality Management of the Practice Learning Environment (QMPLE)

QMPLE is an online resource developed by NHS Education for Scotland (NES) to provide access to data relating to the quality of nursing and midwifery practice learning experiences (PLE’s).  It is used by all Accredited Education Institutions (AEI’s) and NHS Boards in Scotland.
QMPLE enables students to provide valuable feedback about their PLE and facilitates a consistent approach to quality audits and approvals of PLE’s between universities and practice partners.  More information about QMPLE can be found here
