*Scheme* – New to Practice Nurse and Nursing Associate VTS
What’s on offer?
Support for practices to employ and train a newly-qualified or new-to-practice nurse or nursing associate.
Includes a programme of weekly teaching and training sessions, funded by NHSE/I fellowship funding.
Participating practices can access a bursary.
When is it available?
The April 2022 Cohort is now underway.
Subject to funding, the next cohort will be planned for April 2023, and open for applications later in the year once confirmed.
How long is it?
Two-year scheme for ‘New to Practice’ General Practice Nurses who are either newly qualified or new to General Practice and in their first year.
One-year scheme for ‘New to Practice’ General Practice Nursing Associates who are either newly qualified or new to General Practice and in their first year.
The focus of the programme is to improve understanding and confidence in the key components of core General Practice Nursing as well as provide peer support and an element of supervision. The attendance would equate to a half-day session per week; however, some sessions may be run fortnightly over a full-day and some sessions may be self-directed. The weekly teaching will take place largely virtually but also some face to face when required. The sessions will be delivered by a range of professionals including GP Educators, Nurse Educators, Nurse mentors and also provide opportunities for peer teaching and learning.
What funding is available?
The teaching programme is fully funded and currently participating practices can access a bursary to support release of time for training, and mentorship time.
