Embarking on a career as a midwife can be challenging. Newly qualified midwives encounter a steep learning curve when moving from their known role of students to become registered midwives. The realisation of increased accountability and having to meet service needs can generate anxiety and stress and the only option has been described as ‘sink or swim’ (Hughes & Fraser 2011).
The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) recommends a preceptorship programme (NMC 2006); however, this should not be regarded as a mentoring opportunity, nor as supervising practice, but as a structured transition for newly qualified practitioners (Department of Health (DH) 2010).
A supportive preceptorship programme could be the answer to help the newly qualified navigate through the ‘transition shock’ (Kramer 1974) as well as help retention (Hutt & Buchan 2005).
The NHS is currently facing a shortage of nearly 3,500 midwives and one of the critical issues is staff retention (Royal College of Midwives (RCM) 2016). Staff are more likely to stay in an environment where they feel valued and supported.
