Here’s more about the role and what we’re looking for
We are looking to recruit to Registered nurse vaccancies (both full and part time will be considered) within the Respiratory Specialty. This includes all three wards in the respiratory unit.
We can offer a range of incentives these include:
We are also able to offer support from the Respiratory Unit Sister which is a unique role to respiratory working across the unit to support, educate and train all staff working in respiratory. She will also be able to tailor your induction to your own needs depending on your experience and existing skills.
During your induction (lasting up to a month) you will spend time not only on the ward but with the nurse specialists and observing the patient pathway so you will have a greater understanding prior to starting on the ward.
We are also able to offer an increase to the pay point above your current pay point on the band 5 scale, and NMC registration for the first year on successful appointment, subject to conditions.
The wards all consist of 28 beds with 4 of these being high dependency beds on 403.
Ward 402, 403, and 404 all take respiratory patients and we work as a unit transferring patients to each of the wards as appropriate. We also operate an 8 week rotation for all staff to complete at least once across the respiratory unit, so that all staff have spent at least 4 weeks working on each of the wards.
On ward 403 we care for Level 2 respiratory patients in our Respiratory High Dependency Unit requiring a variety of treatments including non invasive ventilation using bipap and cpap, trachestomy’s requiring additional support, patients that require high flow oxygen using our new AIRVO system. We admit patient direct from the Emergency Department, ITU, or other ward areas and step them down as appropriate.
Here at Derby we pride ourselves on providing high quality evidence based care and are often involved in new research initiatives, we are keen to support staff development and offer rotation with in the service and specialist competencies.
