Preceptorship Nurse Programme:
This programme is split into two six-month periods.
- The first will be supported by documentation reflecting the Knowledge and Skills Framework and 7 appropriate competencies; this will guide and monitor your progress.
- The second 6 months will be guided by an action plan created between you and your mentor. The action plan should include S.M.A.R.T objectives that aim to enhance the areas where you have shown real ability and strengths, and also address areas where it has been identified that development is required. This action plan will take you to your first appraisal at the end of your first year.
Please note that your hourly rate will be reviewed after successful completion of your preceptorship.
