Preceptorship Programme

The realisation that you will soon be a newly qualified practitioner can feel quite unnerving especially as you will also joining a new team and have lots of new information to try and absorb.

Our preceptorship is not about you revisiting your training but rather enhancing and maximising your professional development for the benefit of your patients, your team or department, the Trust and of course yourself.

From the moment you register with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) or the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), you become accountable and are expected to be autonomous with a responsibility to uphold the professional standards set by your professional body. To help support you we have developed the preceptorship programme, to aid you to reflect, learn and develop.

The Preceptorship Programme at the RUH is open to all newly qualified practitioners with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) or the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and starts after induction. The programme is the beginning of a lifelong journey of reflection encouraging the ability to self-identify continuing professional development needs to promote accountability, self-reflection and safe practice based on four foundational pillars of practice (Clinical Practice; Facilitating Learning, Leadership and Teamwork, Evidence, Research and Development).
