We are excited to welcome you back to ALCNS to join us in the upcoming programmes organised collaboratively by the ALCNS and the NUS Nursing Alumni (NUSNA)! These programmes seek to provide a platform for you to enhance your professional development whilst allowing you to contribute back to our alma mater. To start off the year 2018, we have organized 2 programmes just for you! Details will be stipulated in this email.
1. Alumni Clinical Education (ACE) short course
Have you ever been afraid of the idea of preceptoring nursing students and fellow fledglings? Then this course is just for you! The Alumni Clinical Education (ACE) has been created to provide registered nurses with the knowledge and skills in clinical teaching and assessment to nursing students. The learners will be introduced on the principles underpinning effective teaching and assessment in the clinical and simulation learning environments. The teaching and assessment techniques include giving and receiving feedback, fostering clinical reasoning and reflective practice. As such, the ACE short course not only allows our undergraduates to learn from their seniors’ knowledge and clinical experience, but also grooms our Alumni in mentor- and preceptor-ship.
Important details of ACE
Maximum: 20 learners
· At least 1 year of clinical experience
· Able to commit to either options A,B OR C
Benefits (*Benefits differ among varying options A,B & C)
A: CPE points
B: CPE points, Certificate of Participation
C: CPE points, Certificate of Participation

As these simulation sessions aim to prepare the undergraduates for their Transition-To-Practice (TTP), the sessions are divided according to the various hospitals. It is preferred that interested facilitators choose the sessions assigned to the hospital they are working at/have worked before. Interested individuals who have experience working in paediatrics/obstetrics/gynaecology settings are encouraged to opt for sessions assigned for KKH. The clinical simulation dates and the respective assigned hospitals for each session are as follows.
