Capital nurse programme

Kick-start your nursing career!

We’ve developed a unique 18-month rotation programme in partnership with Health Education England. This is an exciting opportunity to gain specific learning with clinical and educational supervision. Under the guidance of a lead nurse, you will build on your experience and develop a career plan in your area of interest.

The 18-month rotation programme involves three 6-month placements.


  • Paediatrics: Placements will be on the Paediatric Assessment Unit, an elective and emergency ward
  • Surgery: Placements will be on orthopaedics, general surgery, day surgery or theatres
  • Medicine: Placements will be on stroke, care of the elderly, respiratory, endocrinology, gastroenterology wards, or the Acute Assessment Unit

These placements can be at a single hospital site or cross-site.

What we offer

  • A comprehensive preceptorship programme
  • A fully funded mentorship/assessors’ qualification at a local university
  • A management module including a work-based project
  • Mentoring from a lead nurse

You will be given a permanent contract so that you can stay on at the Trust to work in the area you enjoyed most, or gain experience in another area.

If you would like to discuss this programme, please contact our Lead Nurse for Recruitment & Retention Annette Lloyd at .
