Job overview

OA East Hub  CMHTs, is offering a Preceptorship programme to help newly qualified nurses get the very best start, not only within nursing but within community nursing/community care.

Our preceptorship programme is designed specifically for you as a newly qualified nurse, to support you in that transition and to build the confidence of working independently within a community setting.

The programme is a ‘hands’ on practical approach by where you will be allocated a mentor to work under the supervision of, whilst working as part of a multi-disciplinary team. As part of the preceptorship you will meet with service users, parents and carers to gain insight of what the expectations are from a recipient’s perspective. 

Main duties of the job

As well as discussing with members of the team around the challenges and achievements of not only the team but individuals, whilst carrying a slightly reduced caseload to work with under the supervision of the mentor and team.

The aim is to equip the practitioner with the right skills to become a brilliant nurse and care coordinator. We will help, support and nurture you to become the best you can be. We will help you to develop in confidence as a nursing professional, enhance your skills and continue your journey of life-long learning.

Upon successful completion of the 18 month preceptorship programme if you are starting with the team straight from training or 12 months if currently working as a band 5 you will progress into a band 6 role and take on the responsibilities associated with that grade.
