3 1.0 Introduction The Preceptorship Framework for newly registered nurses, midwives and allied health professionals published by the Department of Health in March 2010 updated the existing framework for nurses to incorporate newly registered midwives and allied health professionals. This policy draws on the preceptorship framework, the Knowledge and Skills Framework and NMC (Nursing and Midwifery Council) and HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) guidance to produce a standardised preceptorship process for all newly qualified practitioners to follow. Health visiting, clinical, professional, managerial and education providers from across the West Midlands region have identified that a robust mechanism needs to be in place to support the newly qualified nurse, health visitor and allied health professional to go through the process of novice to expert. Since there may be an increased number of newly qualified nurses accessing and completing the health visiting training programme, this framework needs to complement the preceptorship programme for newly qualified nurses and allied health care professionals within organisations. 2.0 Purpose The purpose of this policy is to provide a standardised process for newly registered nurse, health visiting practitioners and allied health professional (Preceptee), Preceptors and Line managers to be implemented within the Black Country Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. In addition it incorporates the requirements for return to practice health visitors, nurse and allied professionals those that need re-skilling and their confidence building and staff that may have been on long term sick leave and are returning to work. For newly qualified nurses and health visitors who have worked previously as first level nurses or midwives there will be up to six month period of preceptorship. For those newly qualified health visitors who are also newly qualified nurses, this process will complement the preceptorship process for newly qualified nursing and allied health care professionals. 3.0 Objectives Preceptorship is a period of time where newly registered nurse, health visitor practitioners and allied health professionals are supported while settling into their new role/organisation. A period of formal preceptorship ensures that the practitioner has access to an experienced and competent role model. Preceptorship for newly qualified nurses, health visitors and allied health professional practitioners can occur both formally with structured meetings, observations, supervision and planned learning experiences or informally each time a Preceptee works alongside a more experienced colleague. The purpose of preceptorship is: To support with the integration of newly registered practitioners into their new role To support newly registered practitioners apply the knowledge acquired through qualification to the practice setting Version 1.0 June

4 To support newly registered practitioners with the transition into practice through the setting of clear learning objectives To ensure that newly registered practitioners are fit to practice in accordance with accepted good practice standards as defined by professional regulating organisation and the requirements of the Black Country Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. The aim of the nurse, health visiting and allied health professional preceptorship programme is to ensure that newly registered nurse, health visitor, allied health professional or return to practice practitioners becomes effective, confident and fully autonomous individuals able to deliver high quality care to patients and clients within our local health community. 4.0 Definitions Preceptorship Preceptorship is defined within the Preceptorship Framework as A period of structured transition for newly registered practitioners during which they will be supported by a Preceptor, to develop their confidence as an autonomous professional, refine skills, values and behaviours and to continue on their journey of lifelong learning. (DH, 2010) Preceptor A person, generally a staff nurse, who teaches, counsels, inspires, serves as a role model and supports the growth and development of an individual (the novice) for a fixed and limited amount of time with the specific purpose of socializing the novice into a new role.
