To ensure the best possible start for our newly qualified nurses, nursing associates, midwives and allied health professionals, we offer a quality preceptorship programme.

Preceptorship is a period of structured transition to guide and support all newly qualified practitioners from student to autonomous professional in order to develop their practice further.

A preceptorship is a structured period for newly qualified nurses, nursing associates, midwives or allied health professionals when they start employment in the NHS. During this time, they are supported by an experienced practitioner, a preceptor, to develop their confidence as an independent professional, and to refine their skills, values and behaviours. 

Having expert support, and learning from best practice in dedicated time gives a foundation for lifelong learning and allows them to provide effective patient-centred care confidently.

Newcastle Hospitals delivers a Preceptorship Programme to support new registrants. Please visit our intranet page for more information.
