Newly qualified nurses celebrate their success
9:00am Tuesday 1st October 2013 in News
NEWLY qualified nurses and midwives from Andover, Basingstoke and Winchester hospitals have celebrated their success.
Almost 70 newly qualified nurses and midwives who trained with Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust celebrated at a special ceremony on Wednesday, 18 September, marking their graduation from students to qualified staff.
The nursing and midwifery students studied at Surrey, Southampton and Bournemouth universities and completed their placements and training at one or more of the Foundation Trust’s hospitals – Andover War Memorial Hospital, Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital and Royal Hampshire County Hospital, in Winchester.
Each nurse or midwife received a Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust badge which they will wear on their uniforms for the rest of their careers to show where they trained.
The presentations were made by Hampshire Hospitals chief nurse Donna Green, watched by the colleagues and families of the nurses and midwives, the mayors of Andover, Basingstoke and Winchester, and members of the board and governors of the Foundation Trust.
Donna said: “The nursing and midwifery badge ceremony allows us to publically celebrate with the nurses, midwives, colleagues and families the end of their training and the start of what we hope to be a long and happy career.
“I would like to extend my congratulations to our newly qualified nurses and midwives and hope that they will be proud to wear the badge from their training hospitals.”
