A West Yorkshire care company is celebrating nine year partnership with the University of Bradford, School of Nursing.
Czajka Care Group offers student nurses the opportunity to work within their care homes to enable them to develop their nursing knowledge and skills in the delivery of safe, caring, compassionate, respectful, adaptable and excellent care.
Placements within the homes are usually for between nine and eleven weeks, and provide a valuable learning experience, supported by registered nurse mentors.
Sue Cutts from Czajka says: “Our Currergate, Beanlands, Staveley Birkleas and Fairmount nursing homes in the Keighley, Skipton and Nab Wood areas are all part of the education programme, working in partnership with the school of nursing at the University of Bradford to help improve nursing standards across the board.
“We provide first rate hands on experience, training and mentorship to the student nurses and we very much enjoy their enthusiasm and proactive approach to learning which means they quickly integrate into our team.
“We are committed to a continuous improvement in the services we deliver and we welcome all new perspectives, especially those that student nurses can offer.”
Tyiba Ali, who is a first year student nurse is currently on placement within Czajka Care Group.
She says: “This is my first clinical placement and I feel that I have quickly become part of very welcoming team of nurses and carers. It’s great to be able to be involved in the nursing care of residents, some have a range of complex health issues, so I am gaining plenty of experience as I work alongside experienced staff. I also feel that it is a real privilege to be involved in the residents day to day lives.”
