#StayAndThrive - Thursday 31st March 2022 8:30pm (GMT Standard Time) Being Prepared To Help International Nurses #StayAndThrive

If you haven't joined in a tweet chat before it's very simple.    Here's a guide





 Chat Details

f  

Hosted by WeNurses using #StayAndThrive

Welcome to tweet chat 1 of 5 covering a variety of topics exploring how we support and encourage our internationally educated colleagues to #StayAndThrive 

#StayAndThrive Programme Background

The #StayAndThrive programme is a cross-regional research inaction pilot involving 41 organisations across the  North East and Yorkshire and South West regions. The program aims to uncover what really matters to international recruits and how the conditions can be created where international recruits feel a strong sense of belonging, are able to thrive in their personal life and professional life whilst progressing in their career. The program is working in collaboration with the Looking After our PeopleRetention program and has commissioned research by Huddersfield University to develop evidence-based recommendations to inform retention strategies for international nurses working in the NHS.

The #StayAndThrive tweetchats will provide us with an opportunity to understand contributing factors in creating conditions where our Internationally educated colleagues feel a strong sense of belonging and can thrive in their personal life, professional life, and can progress in their careers. Following on from understanding these factors we'll look to discuss how we as individuals and organisations can improve the short and long-term living and working conditions to help our internationally educated colleagues to #StayAndThrive.

We very much welcome everyone to join our #StayAndThrive chats including both new and settled internationally educated colleagues and of course the many of us who care alongside them every day.

Chat Info: Being Prepared To Help International Nurses #StayAndThrive

There are dozens, or according to a google search hundreds of thousands, of quotes related to the value and importance of being prepared, did you have one pinned up during your nursing studies? Do any of these quotes apply to inviting somebody to uproot their life and move to work in a different country and in a highly skilled and regulated role?

Food for thought…

Being prepared is a two-way process, meaning that it is not just internationally educated colleagues that need to be prepared to arrive in the UK, but we as employers, colleagues, friends, and peers also need to be prepared to welcome and support internationally educated colleagues in settling into life and work in the UK.

Language, banking, housing, law, shopping, insurance, buying a car, driving, relaxing, tax - daunting isn't it!

When starting a new job, there are lots of things that you have to prepare for, who do you report to, how will you get there, what bank will you get paid in to, when will you have your break – where will you have your break? When and how will you get your uniform, how do you even know what size to order? Have you packed everything you need for the day? What will your responsibilities be- how will you know this? Who can you go to for help?....now imagine this but you’re in a different country, speaking a different language, the culture is unfamiliar. There is now even more stuff to prepare for…how will you understand the new culture and how will your culture be understood by others?

On top of this there are other things to prepare for such as UK weather, differences in UK dialect, British cuisine/ supermarkets and British currency/contactless payments!

We aim on this chat to focus on not only the nursing aspect but all aspects of being prepared for internationally educated colleagues to work and live and #StayAndThrive alongside us. 

We'll be asking the following questions during this tweet chat 

  • When should we start preparing to welcome our international recruits?
  • If you were moving to work in another country, how would you expect your new employer to be prepared for you?
  • What do you think your organisation does well to be prepared for your international peers?
  • Whose role in an organisation is it to get the organisation prepared for international recruits?
  • What role can you play in being prepared to support your international nurse colleagues?
  • What role does the leadership team play in welcoming the international recruits?
  • The international recruits give up so much, leaving their country, culture, family, friends, & work to come and work for the NHS, how can we ensure they feel welcome?
  • How can we make everyone (Staff, Patients, Visitors) recognise the sacrifice, the value they bring?
  • How can we prepare international nurses for life and work in the UK?
  • How can we prepare staff to support international nurses?

@WeNurses Evening! #StayAndThrive
@LolaOmotoso
31 March 2022 20:36
@WeNurses From my perspective, I think we should stay preparing for them as soon as we decide we want to start recruiting from overseas. That is when it should start...put awareness and preparedness for what is to come in place. #StayAndThrive
@WeNurses

@WeNurses The earlier the better! Get clinical teams prepared to support experienced nurses who may find NHS overwhelming- start thinking about life in the NHS and the UK from their perspective to cover as many challenges as possible #stayandthrive

@WeNurses weather ! what clothing do I need. what are the shops £-£££s, transport and how to use. #stayandthrive
@AgencyNurse
31 March 2022 20:39
Things like being able to make connections with others before I got there, really comprehensive information around what to expect, perhaps a virtual tour, help with finding somewhere to live and practical tips about living in that country #StayAndThrive https://twitter.com/wenurses/status/1509615764541620240
@knitknitqueen
31 March 2022 20:39
@WeNurses I think about this a lot I would want the person to know I am coming, with this in mind I have started to send out a welcome letter with pictures of key individuals they will meet. I want to also start little hampers but need £££££ ???? #StayAndThrive
@RNChristinaH
31 March 2022 20:39
@WeNurses A1 we should always be prepared. International recruits are the norm, they are our collegues, our team. We should be as prepared as we are newly qualified, new to the department, return to practice etc #stayandthrive

@LOkoroezi
31 March 2022 20:39
@WeNurses For me, I think preparation should be at organisational level. Any sufficient amount of time it takes for the organisation to buy into recruiting international staff, not just the recruitment team or a few staff to support them when they arrive. #StayAndThrive
@WeNurses
31 March 2022 20:40
Don't worry about keeping up :) You can answer some or all of the #StayAndThrive questions or just chat about each others answers. Enjoy chatting together...

@NRCUK @WeNurses The living needs are such a challenge at the moment. Trying to find ways to support with getting a deposit. Very hard when you do not come with savings. It's challenging for us here, let alone when you have just landed #StayAndThrive

@WeNurses I think while training it helps to understand nursing from a global perspective. I was lucky enough to meet American students on an exchange. Really opened my eyes so how different counties train their nurses! But employers need to start before recruitment. #StayAndThrive
@RNChristinaH
31 March 2022 20:42

@WeNurses I think its about links to the local community and having a fellow nurse to work alongside till they feel comfortable with our policies and procedures. Plus a structured induction process. #StayAndThrive
@AgencyNurse
31 March 2022 20:44

31 March 2022 20:46

@WeNurses Educate the workforce!! Put posters of the value they bring, hear their stories. A picture is worth a thousand words, what people see informs their world view. Present them in light of the value they bring to our organisation #stayandthrive

@OGormanCarmel
31 March 2022 21:08
@EdCoxNHS @WeNurses Yes. Avoid making assumptions. Rather be open and interested in their previous areas of clinical practice. This allows sharing ideas and best practice to promote health care improvements #stayandthrive

@mynameisAndyJ @WeNurses A dedicated Lead should be in post for International Recruitment. Someone senior like a Matron, Deputy Heads, Heads or Directors so they can influence the organisation at their level. Then form a team alongside other staff members. Every MDT can be represented. #StayAndThrive

@WeNurses Information overload can be counterintuitive, a lot of patience and time is required for them to be eased into UK practice. Listen to what they need and action that, anticipate what they would require and give them a good understanding of their new home #stayandthrive

@WeNurses this really should start at recruitment ! it's part of the package. I have never moved countries but I imagine it would be over whelming - we often only see it through the clinical eye. so invest in good pastoral care and social interaction #stayandthrive

@WeNurses Definitely stop stereotyping nurses based on background and original training country. It does not give confidence to any nurse, patient, colleague, creates a sense of "not good enough" for some of "us"! Assess the knowledge/skills prior bombarding with judgement! #StayAndThrive

@WeNurses Make this place a home away from home. So much is at stake for Int'l staff and they need to know they are valued. I think 5/6 years is too much for an international staff to get to feel at home. Immigration law needs to look into it. Leads to poor staff retention. #StayAndThrive

@OGormanCarmel @mynameisAndyJ @WeNurses Many are really excited then it hits them as soon as they land. I just thought, we need to have someone on call to speak to an individual. Something else to consider #StayAndThrive

@WeNurses They don't just work in the NHS. The care home company I work for has recruited from the Philippines ???? I think we need more cultural understanding and include them in our tea breaks, staff nights out etc #StayAndThrive

@knitknitqueen @WeNurses We have a hamper ready and waiting for our nurses when they arrive with the basics (some soap, a blanket, their own mug, some basic foods etc ) but always open to more suggestions! #StayAndThrive

@VBagshaw @WeNurses I believe we do. It has to be around us, patients, staffs and all most be involved. It starts with me!!! #stayandthrive

@knitknitqueen @mynameisAndyJ @WeNurses Yes, I think that's an important point. Someone who is kind and understanding to listen, to reassure and offer support. More importantly who will check in again with them. #StayAndThrive #caring #compassion #transition #fisherscurve

@WeNurses More promotion around not just what they do in this country but what they are able to do for their communities ‘back home’. I met a nurse who had helped build a school in her village while working in the UK. She was so pleased and they named a classroom after her. #StayAndThrive

@DDrdk @WeNurses Trusts should also be more accommodating with block booking annual leave so they can visit home. Also take into account their celebration days ie. Christmas is different to ours. Have a cultural awareness #stayandthrive
