Wessex LEaD - Award received from the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) Foundation.
Louise Greenwood, Wessex Local Education, Training and Development Manager (LEaD) was delighted to accept an award at the recent Royal College of Nursing Congress Awards Ceremony at Bournemouth International Centre which launched the 2015 RCN Congress. The Wessex RCN Fund for Practice Nurse Advancement award was:
“in recognition of impact achieved through learning and development to improve patient experience and nursing care”
Louise successfully applied for bursaries through the foundation which contributed towards the GPN Refresher programme run by Wessex LMCs’ Local Education and Development (LEaD) office which enabled practice nurses across Wessex to attend excellent updates in key treatment areas at an accessible price.
More bursaries are available to nurses in practices, so please do visit their website to see if there are monies available to support any of your nurses individually in their education and development http://www.rcnfoundation.org.uk/
