Staff Nurse - Ward - RGN

Job Description

We’re looking for a highly skilled Ward Nurse with a passion for delivering exceptional patient care. If you became a nurse to really care for people and help them through difficult times, you’ll find this role both motivating and rewarding.

Whether you’re currently working in the NHS or in a private setting, you’ll find that Nuffield Health is different. We genuinely believe in putting our patients first – that means allowing you to provide the highest standards of care, to have time for your patients, and to experience the real satisfaction of a job well done.

About this ward role
At Nuffield Health we trust our nurses to use their own judgment and skills. As a result, they’re respected and valued as professionals. With us, you get to work on a very varied caseload, so you’ll need to draw on all your skills to ensure each individual patient receives the high quality of care they deserve.

Reporting to the Ward Manager, you’ll be part of a close-knit team headed by our matron, who provides the foundation and lead for our patient centred care. And, with our consultant-led service, you’ll be working directly with some of the best clinical talent around, gaining experience with new practices, equipment and facilities. These are maintained to a high standard – we take great pride in our low infection rates and high CQC scores at Nuffield Health.

Your key accountabilities will be:

  • Supervising and supporting clinical support staff and junior staff in the delivery of care, providing education, training and mentorship to meet development needs
  • Delivering high quality patient care, which is clinically effective, evidence based and appropriate
  • Assessing, planning, implementing and evaluating care as part of a collaborative programme

Opened in 1971, we’ve established a reputation for clinical excellence and outstanding patient care. Our facilities include 3 operating theatres, 37 single rooms, 2 HDU beds and an endoscopy unit. Our busy outpatient department includes a minor operating room, physiotherapy and clinical imaging unit.

Nursing qualifications, skills and values
As a nurse registered with the appropriate governing body, you’ll have the qualifications and experience relevant to your registration. You’ll also have post-registration experience. Immediate / Advanced Life Support is desirable.

Like us, you believe in putting people first. So you’ll appreciate having the time to care – to fully understand each patient’s needs and provide individual attention that can mean so much when they’re at their most vulnerable. In short, you’ll be able to deliver the type of care that comes naturally to a talented nurse.

You’ll be an excellent communicator and team worker – flexible and motivated. As part of the hospital team, you’ll interact with practitioners from other departments because you understand the importance of continuity in patient care.

Candidates must be NMC qualified.

Why Nuffield Health?
At Nuffield Health, you’ll find the support, training, generous benefits package and respect for balance that will enable you to enjoy a healthy work life.

This is an exciting time for us and it could be for you too. Our vision is to transform healthcare in the UK and deliver health as it should be. Our approach is unique -– we’re bringing together assessment, treatment and prevention services to provide truly integrated care.

As the UK’s leading healthcare social enterprise, every penny we make is reinvested in our resources. It means that together, we can all do the right thing for our patients, clients and employees.

  • Health assessments (after a qualifying period)
  • Free membership of our fantastic Nuffield Health Fitness & Wellbeing Centres, with heavily subsidised memberships for family
