There are updates to the ‘What to expect from preceptorship’ section to support the new national preceptorship framework for nursing. More resources have been added to the self-care and wellbeing and clinical supervision sections, and the programme is easier than ever to digest with videos, infographics and links to useful external resources.

The content is available for all nursing students, you just need a Learning Hub account which is free to all NHS staff and students and can be accessed at any time which means students can work their way through it around their university or placement workloads and schedules.

It includes information to help transition from being a student nurse into a first post as a registered nurse with advice for searching and applying for a first job, what to expect at the start, how to make the most of the early stages of a nursing career, and much more.
