Staff Nurse Development Framework

We recognise the valuable contribution made by our nursing workforce in delivering high quality healthcare for patients and their families. We believe that providing appropriate training and education for our staff is essential in achieving this, and we are currently in the process of implementing a new development framework for Staff Nurses.

The Staff Nurse development framework has the Trust values embedded within it to ensure that staff deliver quality patient care, in addition to enhancing their own knowledge and skills.

Core competencies for each level form part of the development framework. In order to complete these competencies support will be provided in the clinical area and also through education and training.
