Pinching with pride — the chief nurse junior fellowship


This case study shows how Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust sought to reduce their staff turnover, by adopting a development opportunity created by Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust for newly qualified recruits — the chief nurse junior fellowship.

The trust combined learning from Nottingham’s model and project meetings with education and operational colleagues to determine what would work best for newly qualified staff in Gloucestershire.

This programme offered the trust’s most talented newly qualified recruits leadership development, including a diploma in leadership and management, quality improvement training, leadership coaching, facilitated action learning sets and mentoring opportunities with the Chief Nurse. It also resulted in improvements to retention, with all fellows reporting they now felt they had the courage, confidence and skills to pursue their next role within the trust.
