A rotation scheme to give newly-qualified nurses a greater variety of experience has been started by Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust.
The scheme is intended to give newly-qualified nurses rounded development during their first year in practice. They will be employed by a locality rather than a service, and will have opportunities to work across services.
The mental health trust said the scheme was intended to provide an opportunity to “upskill” staff in areas outside their normal practice, improve working relationships across services, support personal development, and also to improve staff retention and prevent burnout.
