Career progression tool and preceptorship standards launched for nurses in capital
Published: 18 Jan 2018 By NICOLA MERRIFIELD
A free digital tool designed to help nurses progress in their careers has been launched in London along with voluntary standards for preceptorships, as part of efforts to keep the capital’s nursing staff in the profession.
The digital career framework has been developed by the Capital Nurse programme, a London-wide project that is aimed at improving retention of health service nurses in the city.
The digital career tool, described by those behind it as the “nursing skills Fitbit”, allows nurses to reflect on and record their career progression – and provides a template for a discussion with a senior staff member about how to advance.
