Send us your questions by 19 June for an ALLIANCE Live interview that will be released in late June on the voice of newly qualified nurses.

On Wednesday 24 June the ALLIANCE Carer Voices team will be interviewing nurses Clare Manley and Craig Davidson who are running the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) Newly Qualified Nurses Twitter (this link will take you away from our website).

This Twitter community has been created by a team of curators from diverse sections of the newly registered nursing community as part of a larger project for which Clare is the co-lead with a member of the Students’  Committee, Kendal Moran.

RCN newly qualified nurses aim to provide a voice for newly qualified nurses within the RCN and provide support from six months pre-registration throughout preceptorship. The project is sponsored by the RCN Students’ Committee who states, “The RCN Students’ Committee is thrilled to support RCN newly qualified nurses. It is a very exciting project, shedding light on the unique perspective that the newly registered add to the voice of nursing, providing support and guidance at the beginning of their nursing journey. We know it will make a huge difference.”

This important ALLIANCE Live session will consider personal experiences of the frontline response to the COVID-19 pandemic from newly qualified nurses, the transition between student and practice and the importance of nursing networks and leadership at this time.

We want to hear questions from ALLIANCE members and newly qualified nurses. Please submit your questions via email – carervoices@alliance-scotland.org.uk – by Friday 19 June.

ALLIANCE Live highlights emerging issues, examples of good practice and innovation taking place within health and social care in Scotland.
