You can opt to go directly onto a ward you’ve enjoyed during your training, or we can also offer a bespoke rotation programme should you prefer to experience more than one area.
We’ve listened to feedback from previous preceptor nurses, and are pleased to introduce increased simulation training in our brand new simulation suite, and the addition of a research and development opportunity for all participants, fully supported by the Trust’s Lead Research Nurse.
