New nurse education and training centre opens for Nurses' Day

  • Comment

University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust has launched a new education and training centre for nurses and midwives.

The Education and Practice Learning Academy based at Leicester Royal Infirmary had its official opening today to coincide with International Nurses’ Day.

The facility, located in a newly-renovated building, includes two teaching rooms and resources for training nurses, midwives, allied health professionals and students.

It was funded by Health Education England’s branch for the East Midlands, as part of efforts to boost training and education for staff and students across the region.

The grand opening will feature posters and displays showcasing recent work by the trust’s practice learning team and its nursing and midwifery education and practice development team.

Posters created by nursing students who have undertaken in-house training will also be on show.

“We have decided to have the open day on International Nurses’ Day to have a double celebration,” said Claire Agnew, senior nurse for clinical practice development.

“Those attending will be invited to contribute to bunting, which will display why our nurses are proud to be in their profession,” she said.

The event will also see the presentation of the trust’s first care certificates to show health and social care workers have achieved set standards.
