Frequently Asked Questions
The Trust requires references from your latest clinical placement mentor and your university personal supervisor. You should supply full contact details for these referees especially their email address. All references are requested electronically.
Once you have finished your university course completely (your university will hopefully confirm this date with the Trust in advance) you will be able to start in your ward area. You are not allowed to start working on your ward area in a substantive post until you have officially finished university.
You will commence in post as a Band 2 SHCA.
Prior to receiving full NMC registration please wear your Bank SHCA uniforms. If not on the Bank then please contact your line manager and ask them to order SHCA uniforms.
Hopefully many of the 3rd year nursing students will already be registered on our staff bank but if you are not, we will be able to arrange this if notified by you.
You will be employed on the Bank as a Band 2 SHCA.
You will become a Band 5 when the NMC register shows that you are actually registered. This does not mean when you have paid your fee. You should let Recruitment have your NMC pin number as soon as you receive it so that they can check the NMC register. When you registration is showing an expiry date and revalidation date you are officially registered.
Once your NMC pin is fully registered you should inform your line manager who will then complete a ‘change to post’ form and send it off to payroll so that the change can be made from a Band 2 to a Band 5. Payroll operate a cut off date that changes month on month – if the change form is not returned in time your increase in pay will be back paid in the following month.
Once a confirmed start date has been sent to you via email you will be booked onto our Corporate Trust Induction, Moving and Handling and the Preceptorship (Care Camp).
Recruitment will check your training record before you commence in your substantive post and book any training required.
It is important that you attend the Preceptorship located at the site you will be working at. The Preceptorship will be booked for you by Recruitment.
You do not need to duplicate this training as long as your mandatory training is still in date. If you have already done moving and handling at university you will not be expected to re-do this training but you will be asked to sign a moving and handling training variance sheet and provide a copy of your University patient handling training documentation to the Trust.
Preceptorship will be held for one week from Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm. This training is mandatory for all newly qualified nurses therefore your attendance is required every day.
The preceptorship NQN sessions are held at both Grimsby and Scunthorpe sites – 2 at Diana Princess of Wales Hospital and 2 in Scunthorpe General Hospital.
You should continue to use your Bank SHCA ID badge until your NMC pin is registered and then you should make an appointment via the intranet to attend an ID badge session in your staff nurse uniform. If you are not on the Bank an ID badge appointment will be made for you by Recruitment.
An ID badge amendment form will be completed by recruitment and an amended ID badge will be available for you to collect from the recruitment office after your start date. When you change to a Band 5 your line manager will complete a further ID badge amendment form for you.
Recruitment will order your yellow name badge for your Band 5 Staff Nurse position. You will be able to collect this from recruitment when your NMC pin number is fully registered. Yellow name badges will not be given out for the Band 2 SHCA position due to the timescale and costs incurred.
Your contract as a Band 2 SHCA will be issued as soon as possible after your start date confirmation is sent but please allow up to eight weeks for this.
