Alumni Network for Nurse First

Once clinical staff complete the Foundation programme, they join our Alumni Network which is a growing national network of clinical innovators.

The following video shows the first alumni members at the September 2012 Nurse First Conference

The Alumni Network is one of the key elements to the success of Nurse First and enables us to:

  • keep in touch with participants to monitor and support their continuing innovation activities
  • run occasional masterclasses and events aimed at further developing graduates as social innovators
  • help them to continue to support their own peers and people from programmes that preceeded and succeeded them
  • create a movement of clinical innovators that other staff and organizations can access to be the centre of a cascade of innovation activity.
