If you are newly qualified Nurse you will step into our 12 month preceptorship programme. This is designed specifically to support your transition from student to registrant.
If you are an experienced Nurse you will benefit from meaningful development opportunities as part of your appraisal discussion. These opportunities will be bespoke and tailored to you as an individual. Examples of development include but are not limited to: attendance at workshops, shadowing, rotation programmes, internal transfer, clinical supervision, career conversations and much more!
