NHS England and Improvement are running a ‘Retention Masterclass’ on Monday 5th July 2021, 4:00-5:00pm.
The session will be run via MS Teams, is open to colleagues nationwide from across all sectors and will focus on how we can work together to support better retention of our newly qualified nurses but with the appreciation that much of this learning/insight will be applicable to the wider workforce.
The session will be chaired by Professor Mark Radford, Chief Nurse, Health Education England & Deputy Chief Nursing Officer for England and will feature the following speakers:
– Jess Sainsbury and Kendal Andreason, Representatives on the Royal College of Nursing’s Newly Qualified Nurse Forum who will provide some context around what matters to newly qualified nurses.
– Dr Jane Wray, University of Hull, providing an overview of the research findings from the STaR project: Supporting the Transition and Retention of Newly Qualified Nurses.
– Nicola Buckle, Practice Development Matron, Hull Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, who will present some of the trust’s work linked to the STaR project and a flavour of what the organisation have been doing more broadly to retain early career nurses.
