375hours (full and part time hours)
A fantastic opportunity has arisen for trainee Advanced Nurse Practitioners to join our innovative and dynamic service. Due to the early success of our Surgical Ambulatory Care Receiving Unit (SACRU), we are now developing the model to cover a seven day service and are seeking to train and develop ANP’s to lead, develop and support SACRU going forward.
In this pivotal post, your input will be crucial in shaping the future of emergency surgical ambulatory care across the surgical directorate. We have very proactive approach to innovation within the scheduled care division and are eager to embrace new challenges that will help us to provide our patients with a service that exceeds expectations.
You will be a Registered Nurse (working currently at band 6 or above), with significant acute post-registration experience, who will be supported to undertake an MSc in Advanced Practice (including non-medical prescribing), commencing in January 2017.
An innovative problem-solver, with real drive and initiative, you will demonstrate a proven track record of excellence in clinical practice. The role will support the development of your leadership and management skills, whilst exposing you to the competing priorities facing NHS frontline staff.
Initially, the post will cover a five day service and will grow to a seven day service once all posts have been successfully recruited to.
