Meet The Team: Charlotte McIvor and Rachel Burrows
Hi, I'm Charlotte McIvor! My role currently involves supporting trainee nurse associates and qualified nurse associates in general practice alongside my colleague Rachel Burrows.
As a team we have a nurse associate whatsapp group, that runs 6-8 weekly training sessions for nurse associates and are a point of contact for questions, queries and support. We have been scoping placement opportunities in Nottingham & Nottinghamshire and supporting the universities with insight visits and placement opportunities in primary care. I have been a nurse for 14 years and feel very passionately about the future workforce. I feel the introduction of the nurse associate role is a benefit to nursing, particularly general practice and want to support and advocate for this.
I am a qualified Nurse from University of Nottingham, Completed ANP training in 2015 and I am currently a Digital, Business & Transformation Manager for Bestwood & Sherwood PCN and an Advanced Nurse Practitioner. I have found the team to be very supportive during the integration to this role. I find NATH to be responsive to the needs of primary care.
Hi, I'm Rachel! I am a practice nurse lead in Nottinghamshire and a GPN Educator for NATH. I also work for DeMontfort University supporting students in practice on the fundamentals to practice nursing post graduate course.
My main responsibilities for NATH are to provide support and training for Nursing Associates in primary care. As the Nursing Associate role is relatively new and developing within the primary care field, our main aim is to increase access to resources and support in practice for the NA workforce, and help to implement a preceptorship model into practice. This is with the view to standardising career progression opportunities and ensuring all NAs in primary care across Nottinghamshire are receiving the support they need to develop, progress and be happy in their roles.
I wanted to take on this role as nursing education has always been a passion of mine, especially for the primary care nursing workforce. So it has been great working with the NATH team to be able to expand on my previous experience with supporting practice nursing students through my work with DMU, and extend some support to the Nursing Associates in practice as well.
