Part Time
We know that taking up your first job as a nurse is both exciting and scary. That's why we've set up our Preceptorship Academy, to help you get the very best start.

Your transition from student to registered nurse is one of the biggest leaps you will ever make in your nursing career. But you don't have to do it alone. Our preceptorship programme is designed specifically for you as a newly qualified nurse, to support you in that transition.

Working within a supportive clinically led team, you will have the opportunity to really work in partnership with patients - engaging, supporting and developing a relationship which really enables the recovery process. With a real commitment to improving care delivery, as part of our team you will be supporting quality improvements and initiatives that will enhance the patient experience.

Main duties of the job

The Forensic Services at Sussex Partnership are located across various sites in Sussex and cover the following areas:
  • Medium Secure Admissions Ward
  • Medium Secure Recovery Unit
  • Low Secure Services.
  • Locked Rehab services
  • Forensic Community Services
  • Police and Court
  • Women's Secure Service Pathway including Medium and Low Secure units.

Our local Forensic Preceptorship Programme is facilitated by Forensic Nurse Consultants, who will provide you with a comprehensive support and development programme, further reinforced through Clinical Supervision, identified Pre-placement learning outcomes, peer reflective practice, and monthly training days.

About us

We will help, support and nurture you to become the best you can be. We will help you to develop in confidence as a nursing professional, enhance your skills and continue your journey of life-long learning.

Our preceptorship programme is also a great opportunity to map out your continuing professional development and consider how you want to progress your career as a nurse. You will reflect on and evaluate your role and identity as a nurse, and when you need that extra bit of support to help you through, we'll be here for you alongside your multi-disciplinary team.

The programme is designed and delivered by senior mental health professionals and peer trainers - people with lived experience of mental health services. Through supervision and assessment you are supported to practice safely and build your confidence during your first 12 months as a newly qualified nurse.
