Berkley Nurse Programme

Berkley Nurse Programme

This is Berkley Care Group's very own Nurse Programme!

The 12 month programme, developed in partnership with Somerset-based care training and support provider Caring Footsteps, takes nurses through four key areas of their work: accountability and professionalism; clinical care skills; leadership and management; and ability to take research and apply it to practice.

With nursing today being a degree-based profession, the programme aims to make the numerous opportunities available within the sector accessible to all nurses, including those who may not have studied at a degree level for many years.

The programme will provide evidence of nursing practice at degree standard and will aid the QNI’s goal of nurses in care homes being provided with the same level of skills as those working in the community.

The Berkley Nurse role will become one of an expert practitioner, clinical lead and as guiding mentors and coaches within our homes and across group. The CPD opportunities seek to ensure that all Berkley Nurses have a progressive career.

Abbie

Events Manager at Badminton Place, Bristol

”I started working at Blenheim in July 2019 so coming up to 4 years this year! Insane how time flies!

I didn’t know anything at all about care and never thought I would be in this industry. I started off being a carer on the Dementia floor which was amazing and the teamwork and bonding with residents was the best feeling in the world!

A couple of months into my job I was asked by our Central Support Office who asked if I would be interested in going on to do an NVQ 3 course. I was so happy I was offered the opportunity to progress my career. I was then offered to do my CHAP’s course.

Ever since then, I have developed my career and myself on the nursing floor working alongside some amazing nurses and of course my amazing care team which I cannot thank enough for the hard work they put in every shift.

I have now been offered to do my NVQ level 5 and I cannot wait to get started and develop my career and hopefully one day become a care home manager!

I will always thank Blenheim for the times that were tough in my life and for pulling me through, when I didn’t think there was a way.

Thank you to Berkley Care for believing in me to do my NVQ 5 and supporting me day in and day out. Blenheim will be in my heart forever. I love my second family dearly (Blenheim House residents + staff).”
