Happy healthy people providing excellent compassionate care
Introducing our new Norfolk and Waveney Legacy Nurses
Norfolk and Waveney (N&W) Integrated Care System (ICS) are pleased to launch the Legacy Nursing programme
This exciting pilot will see Legacy Nurses across the ICS clinically teaching both pre and post-registration learners to help shape the future Health and Care workforce. These nurses will spend a ‘legacy’ period, supervising, supporting and handling over their career insights to learners, based on their experiences in nursing. The role will support learners, assessors and supervisors across the system using a model based on the Collaborative Learning in Practice (CLiP).
The role of a Legacy Nurse
The role of the Legacy Nurse will also ensure collaboration with Education Leads and universities across the Norfolk and Waveney System to increase placement capacity across health and social care. The role provides an opportunity to transfer skills and expertise to others. Ongoing support will be provided by both the ICS and educational providers to ensure that individual, often bespoke, learning needs are met, dependent upon the requirements of the individual.
A successful pilot will support our ambition that these will become dedicated roles across the system, so that experienced nurses have the opportunity to feel a sense of achievement by imparting their skills and knowledge to others.
