International Nurses Day is celebrated on Florence Nightingales birthday
More recently, Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal, welcomed Caring Homes, alongside 47 other organisations, to celebrate receiving a Princess Royal Training Awards (PRTA) for commitment to training and development in 2021. This the fourth time, Caring Homes training programmes have been recognised by The Princess Royal Training Awards, for inspirational commitment to learning and development.
Liz Willis, Director of Learning and Organisational Development at Caring Homes, said, “We are delighted that our training programmes have been recognised and we have been included among those organisations to receive one of these coveted training awards for a fourth time. At Caring Homes, we wholeheartedly believe that investing in our colleagues, their learning and ongoing development is pivotal to the success of our organisation, the exceptional standards of care, safety and wellbeing we provide our residents and indeed the way in which we have risen to the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has presented.
“As an organisation, we pride ourselves on our openness and transparency and as such we are always keen to share our best practice approaches and initiatives with the wider nursing community in order to enhance knowledge, to improve the way in which care is provided and to ultimately promote patient safety and quality care. One way we have approached this is through sharing our Nurse Development initiatives at meetings involving Skills for Care, the Royal College of Nursing, and NHS Trusts.
