Nurses smiling NUH is very proud to offer the Rotation Programme open to current and newly qualified Staff Nurses. It is an 18-month rotation programme- working for 6 months or 9 months within different areas following a specific pathway, i.e. Acute Medicine, Trauma Pathway, Medical Pathway and Surgical Pathway.

It is a great opportunity to gain knowledge and experience within different areas of nursing.

The Preceptorship Team works closely with the clinical areas to ensure that both the Band 5 nurse/s on rotation and the ward staff are well supported.

For Newly Qualified nurses and those new to acute care who are undertaking the rotation programme, you will also receive:.

  • Access to courses such as the Acute Care Skills Course and Preceptorship Development Day.
  •  4-month formal preceptorship:- informal preceptorship up to 1 year.
  • Protected learning time in the first year of practice.
  • A bespoke Preceptorship Pathway Booklet to structure their rotation programme.
