An opportunity has arisen for a Community Staff Nurse. Caring is fundamental to nursing services and to all nursing functions. The core values of nursing must underpin the practice of every nurse and drive care that promotes positive and equitable engagement with patients, families and carers as the central focus of practice. Therefore, the District Nursing Service operates an open access policy delivering care to patients within either a community or primary care setting, or who have a nursing need which makes a home visit more appropriate. The service operates over 7 days. You will provide an accessible, appropriate, high quality, culturally sensitive and effective nursing service to all age groups in the community, by working in partnership with service users, care providers and other agencies. You will be responsible for providing skilled nursing interventions for patients within the caseload. You will manage delegated activity within the caseload, and provide support to other members of district nursing team. It is essential that you are currently a Registered Adult Nurse with the NMC and you will support the district nurse in delivering care to patients within the caseload. The shift pattern for this post is flexible to meet the need of the service and this will include weekends and public holidays. This post requires membership of Disclosure Scotland's PVG Scheme. PLEASE READ AND SAVE THE CANDIDATE APPLICATION PACK BEFORE SUBMITTING AN APPLICATION.
This post will be closing on the 15th June 2018.
