An opportunity has arisen within the Childrens Unit for band 5 staff nurses to join our dynamic team. The Childrens Unit consists of inpatient medical/surgical ward with 24 beds, a 3 bedded High Dependency Unit, Short stay paediatric assessment area and an adjoining Paediatric Ambulatory Care Unit.
You should possess excellent communication skills, be motivated, proactive, flexible and able to work autonomously and part of the bigger team. An awareness of the Paediatric Patient Safety Programme would be advantageous and a willingness to extend role to meet the needs of the service.
We offer a robust education programme for all staff and expect staff to maintain professional development to acceptable level. We will offer a 2 week orientation programme for you working within each of the areas which will be a supernummery period. We encourage all newly qualified staff to complete Flying Start and support is provided to achieve this.
