Sussex Partnership provides a preceptorship programme over the first year after qualification to support you in your transition from mental health, adult or learning disability student nurse to registered nurse. Making sure that newly qualified nurses are supported through this transition is an important priority for Sussex Partnership..
We want you to feel supported, engaged and able to develop as a professional nurse with us at what can be a challenging time. You will be allocated a preceptor to support you through the process of preceptorship and help you with your development.
Your preceptorship programme is a great opportunity to map out your continuing professional development and consider how you want to progress your career as a nurse. The programme is also a platform for you to reflect on and evaluate your role, your identity as a nurse and acknowledge when you need that extra support from your preceptor and your multi-professional team.
The first nine months of the preceptorship programme includes 6 study days. The programme is designed and delivered by senior mental health professionals and peer trainers – people with lived experience of mental health services.
As part of your statutory and mandatory training you will meet and learn from/alongside newly qualified practitioners from other professions. Your preceptor will be there to support you to access these different learning events. We provide a workbook to document your preceptee journey which will help to inform your first revalidation.
