Anglia Ruskin University is one of the largest universities in the East of England. Its nursing and midwifery provision was awarded ‘Outstanding’ in the fit-for-practice category of the Nursing and Midwifery Council review. They were the only university to achieve this in the 2012-13 review and it is an indicator of their focus on ensuring that students leave with the skills and qualities they need to work in clinical practice.

The University are piloting the Myprogress program with 500 of their trainee paediatric nurses, providing them each with an 8inch Samsung tablet that they can then take with them on their nursing placements. The tablets will be loaded with Myprogress and other resources such as BNF with the application acting as an electronic version of their practice assessment records. Using the program will allow the trainees to respond to assessments and forms that will instantly be sent to the appropriate tutor, allowing the tutors to track students’ progress and assess their skills while they are out training.
