Nursing (Undergraduate) - How do I record hours in my MYEPAD Workbook?

NOTE: This FAQ is intended only for Undergraduate Nursing Students who use the MYEPAD Workbook in PebblePad.

You are expected to record your placement attendance using timesheet Assets within your MYEPAD Workbook. This page will explain how to use your 'Worked Hours' page to successfully log attendance.

IMPORTANT: Your Practice Assessor will only be able to access your timesheets from the 'Worked Hours' page once you share your Workbook with them - see How do I share my PebblePad Asset with an External Assessor?  You do NOT need to share timesheets individually.

 

Accessing your Worked Hours Page

1) Log into PebblePad and navigate to your Asset Store.

 

2) Open your MYEPAD Workbook. 

 

3) Along the top of the screen you will see the pages in your workbook. Click on the 'Part' you are currently undertaking (Part 1, 2 3 = Year 1, 2, 3), then click on 'Worked Hours' from the menu:

 

 

4) At the bottom of the page, ensure that the switch is turned 'ON':

This switch will activate a search criteria, meaning that any Asset in your Asset Store that has been Tagged with the term ‘Practice hours part 1’ (or part 2 or 3 if accessing those parts) will automatically be attached to the page. The timesheet templates that you use are automatically pre-tagged with ‘Practice hours part 1’ (or 2/3) so turning this switch ON means that you don't have to remember to add your timesheets to this page - they will be 'pulled in' automatically when you save them to your Asset Store.

 

Collecting a new Timesheet

1) Each week, collect a new Timesheet using the time sheet to record your hours link located at the top of the page:

 

 

2) When the Timesheet opens, enter a title in the required format - 'W/C DD/MM/YYYY - Placement 1':

Click Save in the top left. This will save your Timesheet as a new Asset in your Asset Store and add it to the 'Worked Hours' page automatically.

 

Adding hours to your Timesheet

1) Each day, open your MYEPAD and access your 'Worked Hours' page. You will see that any Timesheets you have created already will be listed. If they are not, please ensure you have turned the switch at the bottom ON:

 

 

2) Click on the Timesheet for the current week to open it. You will now see a table where you can record your hours, which will create a running total at the bottom of the grid for the week's hours:

 

 

3) You may have used PebblePocket to complete an 'Evidence of hours' form if the person who signed off your hours does not have access to PebblePad. Once you have uploaded this from PebblePocket to your Asset Store you will need to attach it using the evidence section labelled 'Evidence of hours worked':

 

 

4) At the end of the week, ask your Practice Assessor to verify your hours by adding the total in the section labelled ‘Total hours worked: Practice assessor verification’:
