Name: Helen Jenkins

Job title: Senior Staff Nurse

Place of work: Priory Hospital in Aberdare


Favourite unit:
My favourite unit was the diabetes module because I worked with someone just the other day with diabetes, so it was good to learn those extra bits.

Planning to do next:
I have three left to do, but I will probably do the deteriorating patient unit next.

Why did you choose NT learning?
My company bought a subscription.

What did you most enjoy about the units you completed?
The extra learning from it all.

Do you think that undertaking a learning unit makes you safer to care?
Yes. It’s something that we can put into practice. The diabetes, the bowel and constipation — we can all adapt it. Even though I work in mental health we can adapt it all to our work.

How has NT learning helped you prepare for revalidation?
My revalidation is due in 2019, but I will be adding my work onto the Learning Passport. I think all the hours we have been working on the modules are going to be a big help going towards revalidation because you have to complete so many hours.

What could we do to improve the service to support you better?
It just takes time to do them! I’m not on nights until April so I am struggling to complete them all right now. I had the most time to complete the units during the few weeks I was on night shift. During the day, you don’t always have the time to complete them.

Would you recommend NT learning to your colleagues?
Yes, definitely. I was talking to one of our other hospitals and I explained that we were completing the learning units. You learn so much from the baseline assessment to the final assessment.
