Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust are looking for conscientious and caring Community Nurses to join their team of healthcare professionals and specialists.
Working flexible shifts at Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, you will be delivering and coordinating the complexity of 24/7 care and supervising the management of multiple long-term conditions. Your role is critical to ensure that people maximise their independence and, wherever possible, avoid going into hospital or a care home.
Many people would be unable to live at home without the support that they get from Community Nurses. Sometimes referred to as 'the invisible workforce', you will often work in settings that are not seen by others, sometimes referred to as 'wards without walls.'
Community nursing provides invaluable care to people in their own homes, care homes, or close to where they live, in clinics and GP practices across every village, town and city in the country. They also provide outreach services to those who may not have a secure home. Your calm, reassuring nature and methodical approach to tasks will ensure patients feel safe and reassured.
General key skills
In addition to your qualifications, as a Band 5 Community Nurse, you will:
- be required to undertake all core competencies
- Have effective interpersonal skills
- Hold excellent communication skills written and oral
- Possess effective organisational skills
- Can articulate the evidence underpinning patients' care plans and interventions.
- Be computer literate
- It is also desirable that you hold evidence of managing people and complex situations
As a Band 5 Community Nurse with Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, you will:
- Knowledge of a broad range of conditions, experienced by patients in community and general practice settings. This will include LTCs, for example diabetes, coronary heart disease, heart failure, hypertension and stroke, COPD, arthritis, dementia and other common mental illnesses, frailty and palliative and end of life care.
- An understanding of the presentations of multiple pathology, depression and anxiety states and frailty, predominantly in older people.
- Knowledge of the management of uncomplicated symptoms in those patients with palliative or terminal care needs and enhanced communication skills to confidently manage uncertainty.
- Understanding of the role of the Nurse on the Community.
- Registered General Nurse educated to degree level (or equivalent)
- Current NMC registration
- Evidence of further recent professional development
- Be able to provide clinical references covering a minimum of 3 years
- Provide evidence of immunisation history, including Hep B immunity
