Senior staff development programme

Our senior staff development programme forms a yearlong secondment for community nurses to become senior community nurses. Each nurse on the programme is supported with an extensive training programme and individual mentor. The senior staff development programme provides community nurses with the skills and experience to apply for university courses to become a district nurse.
