Natalie Nurse joins Florence Nightingale Mental Health Nurses Leadership Programme
25 August 2020
The Trust congratulates Natalie Nurse for successfully applying to the Florence Nightingale Mental Health Nurses Leadership programme.
Health Education England partnered with the Florence Nightingale Foundation to offer a career development opportunity to recognise the contribution of Mental Health Nurses. This unique opportunity offers leadership development to 20 Nursing Associates working in a Mental Health Setting.
Natalie is a Mental Health Nurse and a team member of the Camden Adolescent Intensive Support Service (CAISS), our multidisciplinary team offering intensive support to young people in crisis to keep them safe and out of hospital where possible.
The CAISS team features experts from different specialties and agencies who work together to assess and treat young people and their families across a variety of locations in Camden.
Our mental health nurses play a key role at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust and can be found working across many of our services for children, young people, families and adults as well as being engaged in our education and training provision.
Nursing at the Tavistock and Portman continues to receive external recognition. In addition to Natalie’s success, in 2017 CAISS was shortlisted for Nursing Times 'Team of the Year'. Kirsty Brant, Lead Nurse for Gloucester House, was also a nominee in the Mental Health Nursing category of the RCNi Nurse Awards 2019,
Natalie Nurse said:
“I’m delighted to be able to join this exclusive leadership training and bring the skills I develop back to my team at the Camden Adolescent Intensive Support Service.”
