  • More than 55 leading employers and agencies from Birmingham, all over the UK and not to mention Australia. Companies included: nurse recruiters, hospitals, NHS trusts, private healthcare organisations, armed forces and many more – all with immediate vacancies available
     
  • 10 seminars across the two days where industry experts discussed: Preceptorship, surviving your first year as a newly qualified nurse, Revalidation, advice on how to turn your CV into your own personal marketing tool and preparing and succeeding at interviews
     
  • All seminars counted towards CPD requirements
     
  • Many were interviewed at the event and walked away with a new job!
     
  • Key presentations from the likes of: RCN Careers Service, Nottingham University Hospital, RCNi and the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) on how to survive your first year from a Preceptorship Lead Nurse
  • Special talk from Paul Vaughan at the RCN on: 
Reflection - the agent of change:
For decades the reflective process has been considered a core element of nursing practice that supports the delivery of safe and effective care. Despite this, there are still high profile cases where nursing staff deliver poor care. The session 'Reflection - the agent of change' will explore the impact of embedding reflective practice within the new revalidation process and the potential positive impact this can bring to patients, their families and the nursing profession.
 
Emotional Resilience:
The NHS is under enormous strain to deliver safe and effective care within the current financial straits. With shortages of nursing staff and an increase demand on the service, providing compassionate care can take a huge toll on individual nursing staff. Our talk on Emotional Resilience will explore how you can take care of your own personal emotional wellbeing so that you can offer compassionate care to your patients
