Band 5 Staff Nurses for our in-patient stroke unit at St Lukes Hospital, Market Harborough
We are looking for proactive and dynamic Band 5 staff nurses who have experience in medical nursing and an interest in stroke management to join our stroke unit team at St Lukes Hospital, who will take individual responsibility for their work and for their patients to ensure they have a positive experience. The successful candidate will need to be committed to providing a high standard of patient care and will work alongside other members of our team to achieve a high standard. St Lukes Stroke Unit is an 18 bedded unit providing sub-acute care and rehabilitation to patients following a Stroke.
We are currently increasing our registered nurse numbers on our stroke units at Coalville and Market Harborough, so we can deliver a high quality and holistic service to individuals in our care and effectively support their families and carers.
The wards all have a multi-disciplinary approach to patient management. Family and MDT goal setting are an integral part of the registered nurse role in all our in-patient areas. Supported by the Ward Sister and Matron, you will demonstrate and develop your professional accountability, innovative thinking and contribute to the clear vision for the in-patient nursing areas.
We offer training and personal development within the wards and at our Learning and Development centre to ensure you have the knowledge and skills to meet patient needs and complete your revalidation CPD requirements.
In addition we offer: free parking on all our sites and a shift pattern that includes traditional 75 hour shifts and a long shift pattern. We offer flexible working patterns and an opportunity to work predominantly days or predominantly nights. We can clarify this at interview.
