  • Newly registered nurses
  • Allied Health Professionals
  • International Recruits
  • Registered Nursing Associates
  • Professionals returning to work after a prolonged period out of the profession


  • Preceptorship for Non-Medical Health Care Professionals Policy highlights the Trust standard and process that must be followed.
  • Preceptorship Record must be used to document feedback, progress given, action plans and identified objectives to achieve.
  • Study days/sessions available for preceptees to attend (external applicants welcomed)
