An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Registered Nurse to join the District Nursing Team. The Royal Wolverhampton Community Nurses are highly motivated and passionate about providing high quality evidence based care to patients’ in their own homes. Possessing a ‘can do’ attitude and a commitment to improving the way healthcare is delivered.
We are committed to improving the lives of our staff with a leading preceptorship programme, regular staff engagement, feedback sessions and a supportive team ethos across the Adult Community Services Group.
The role of the Community Staff Nurse has changed over the years and we are now looking after complex patients in their home environments. The skills required for Community Nursing included complex wound management, palliative care and end of life care, medicines management, as well as having a high standard of holistic assessment and care planning skills. Training is available within the Trust for the successful applicant.
If you think you have what it takes or you are looking for a change and want to work more autonomously in a challenging environment, with opportunities for further career development then the community could be for you. The staff work, closely with members of the wider multi-disciplinary teams including local Hospices, Community Matron’s, CICT, Rapid Intervention, Hospital at Home and Social Services to name a few.
You will need to be an experienced Registered Nurse with excellent clinical skills. Community Nursing experience is not essential as we offer a comprehensive mentor support programme for all new staff.
You will need to possess excellent communication and organisational skills and be able to travel and work across the whole of the Wolverhampton area. Not all areas are served by public transport so you must hold a valid driving licence. You will be expected to travel across the city in an expedient and secure manner and could be carrying equipment, supplies or other members of staff as passengers.
