What is the Admiral Nurse Accelerator Learning Programme?
The programme has been designed for nurses who are committed to developing the expertise required to become a dementia specialist Admiral Nurse.
It will provide nurses with the opportunity to gain the necessary experience, knowledge, and skills to develop, launch and lead a new Admiral Nursing service.
Who is the programme for?
This programme is for Registered Nurses (Adult, Mental Health and Learning Disability) who have a keen interest in dementia care and have a passion to develop specialist skills and knowledge.
About the programme
This is a six-month programme during which all participants undertake six modules of learning.
The programme has a blended learning approach which includes independent online learning modules, Dementia UK facilitated focus groups, 1:1 professional and practice development support, experiential learning and case study reflection.
Nurses are also supported through 1:1 sessions with their nominated Dementia UK Service Development Consultant Admiral Nurse.
The modules are designed to provide nurses with the necessary knowledge and specialist skills to support families facing dementia.
Each nurse will spend up to 50% of their working week accessing the programme and the remaining 50% of their time in practice developing their new service. The launch of their service will be expected at the end of the programme (month six).
