Career path

Completion of the course will enable you to competently practice as a general practice nurse at a fundamental level of post registration practice.

What skills will you gain?

This role requires consolidation of registrant standards of competence and developing confidence to work alone without direct supervision, undertaking and reporting on autonomous decisions made in practice. It is expected that all newly NMC qualified staff or those moving to a community or general practice setting will have a period of preceptorship within their new clinical setting. Depending on the organisational structures of local areas this role may work within a range of settings that may include general practice, clinics or home settings.

This role requires a developing knowledge of community and practice nursing in the broadest sense, and excellent interpersonal and communication skills to support patients with a wide range of conditions to understand and, where possible, take on self-management of their condition.

The role requires resilience and the ability to be flexible and adaptable whilst working in general practice, people’s homes and other community settings. You will be working as part of a primary/community nursing team and will have some responsibility for supervising less experienced or qualified staff including students in community placements. You will be expected to actively contribute to quality assurance processes and service development.
