Congratulations on your new role! Although this is an exciting time for you as a new healthcare professional, we recognise that it is also a challenging and sometimes stressful period.

Preceptorship is the process used in NHS provider organisations to support you through this transition and help you build your confidence as an autonomous practitioner.

You should always enquire about preceptorship at interviews and on taking up a new post. If you have started in a new post in an NHS organisation in the region and have not been offered preceptorship, you should contact your operational preceptorship lead. If your organisation is not listed and you would like support in this area please contact nursing.yh@hee.nhs.uk.

One of the most important skills for you to develop during your preceptorship period is that of reflection. To help you to develop your skills in this area, you might find it useful to read the ''preceptorship leads'’ at the bottom of the page.

If you have any general queries around preceptorship in Yorkshire and the Humber please contact nursing.yh@hee.nhs.uk


Preceptorship and revalidation for nurses and midwives

All nurse and midwives must revalidate with the Nursing and Midwifery Council every 3 years to remain on the register.

For those entering the register for the first time, or those re-entering the register, this may seem like a long way away. However preparation for revalidation should be a continuous process, with evidence collected over the 3 year period leading up to revalidation.


Evidence from experiences and development during the preceptorship period will form a vital part of the information that you will need to collect to demonstrate your continued fitness to practice.

For more information about revalidation, visit the NMC revalidation website (http://revalidation.nmc.org.uk/welcome-to-revalidation)
