More than 80 newly qualified nurses are beginning work at hospitals across Lincolnshire. The nurses, who have recently graduated from the University of Lincoln, will be posted at Lincoln County Hospital, Pilgrim Hospital in Boston and Grantham and District Hospital. The 83 new nurses will receive a preceptorship induction, before starting in their new roles in wards and departments. Michelle Rhodes, Director of Nursing for United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust, said: “We are delighted and excited to welcome this group of new nurses into the trust. We hope that they enjoy working in our wards and departments as they settle in to life in a busy hospital. We will provide them with a huge amount of support and guidance as they start their careers as nurses. The intake will be a welcome boost in Lincolnshire hospitals, where there are currently 240 vacancies for registered nurses.
