Are you looking to extend your post-graduate education in Neurosciences? We are currently offering the exciting opportunity of a Neurosciences course, at either Level 6 (degree) or Level 7 (Masters), accredited through the University of Southampton for staff committing to a minimum one year contract. The course typically runs over a 6 month period with taught sessions, practice based competency and assignments. The Neuro course is fundamental for future career progression to senior roles such as ward leader, advanced practitioner and clinical nurse specialist.
The Neuro course is delivered within the Wessex Neuroscience Centre by the education team supported by the multi-disciplinary team and accredited by the University of Southampton via the Work Based Learning mechanism (equates to 20 ECT credits). The programme covers all common neurology and neurosurgery conditions such as stroke, head injury, epilepsy, neuro-oncology and spinal pathology.
Whilst studying for the course we are able to offer a rotation within the Wessex Neurological Centre or you could be based in a speciality area. Being one of the largest neuroscience centres in the country we provide services to a population of three million people and form part of the Major Trauma Centre. UHS is a large University teaching hospital with clear priorities for maintaining high standards of care; investing in our staff is one way of delivering the high quality service.
When it comes to careers we are committed to developing yours. If you have a real passion for nursing and you are looking for an exciting, fast moving clinical field to develop your skills then look no further, apply now and join our team.
Here at UHS, we recognise the significant contribution your skills and expertise makes to patient care. In light of this we are offering a one off payment of £2000 to new external applicants appointed within our service, to show our commitment to you. In exchange, you will be committed to remaining with your allocated ward area for a minimum of 12 months, working in partnership with like-minded healthcare professionals in developing others whilst actively contributing to patient safety, experience and outcomes. (T&C apply.)
Informal visits are welcome and encouraged.
