Working Hours: Full Time
Shift Patterns: Days & Nights on rotation
Benefits: Support through Revalidation, competitive salary, annual pay increments, comprehensive training, support and professional development.
I am currently recruiting for a Registered Nurse (RGN/RMN) to join this influential national charity based in Birmingham, West Midlands. Providing outstanding opiate and alcohol detoxification and continued treatment across the UK, this charity service delivers the majority of the addiction recovery services nationally.
The RGN/RMN Health and Wellbeing Nurse position involves a broad range of complex general nursing skills but does attend equally to the mental wellbeing of each patient. As a company they aim to promote abstinence based care and during their patient's 2-4 week stay, the focus will be on detox rather than therapy.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a Registered Nurse (RGN/RMN) to join a fast-paced and exciting charity service in which you can develop professionally and progress within your career.
In your role as Registered Nurse (RGN/RMN) in this substance misuse detox unit you will play an integral part in an experienced multidisciplinary team consisting of Doctors, Recovery Workers and Peer Mentors. Each member of the team plays an essential role and provides a high level of individualised care to every patient who comes into the service. You will be competent across a range of skills, supported by professional and clinical knowledge. You will have sound knowledge of the treatment journey, an understanding of the importance of long term care, and have a positive attitude towards training and development.
Although mental health can be a cause or result of substance misuse and is imperative to the charity's values, their services provide detox rather than therapeutic rehabilitation. As a Registered Nurse (RGN/RMN) it is not essential that you have extensive experience working within substance misuse. It is however vital that you as an RGN have an exceptional level of clinical competence appropriate to requirements such as ECG, BBV testing, Phlebotomy, Seizure Management, Hepatitis screening and a demonstrable, keen interest in this specialism of nursing.
As an RMN it is essential that you have experience working in either substance misuse or areas of mental health such as forensic, secure or locked settings or in prison services. Any deficit in clinical knowledge can be trained, however it is essential that you are able to demonstrate how you arrived at the decision to move into this niche area of nursing.
The benefits of this Health and Wellbeing Nurse (RGN or RMN) role include:
•Generous salary package up to £31,000 per annum
•25 days annual leave plus bank holidays
•Relevant training and development
•Support through Revalidation
