Community Staff Nurse (Band 5)
The Tameside & Glossop District Nursing Service are currently looking to recruit Band 5 Community Staff Nurses for a 12 month fixed term opportunity. Our service works across the 5 neighbourhoods of Tameside. You will be allocated a team base upon appointment and will have the support of our induction facilitator alongside a designated ‘buddy’. Newly qualified applicants will also undertake a preceptorship programme. The role may require you to work across the localities as a service need requirement.
This is an exciting opportunity to become part of an award winning new and developing integrated organisation. If you are a self-motivated, dynamic individual with a passion for community care, this could be the position for you. We offer our Aspire Programme to all band 5 staff nurses to develop within your community career.
You will be working alongside a multi-skilled team of community nurses led by Specialist Practitioners in District Nursing, delivering nursing care to a diverse population within a variety of settings in the community. You will have to work autonomously on a daily basis but will have support from your designated team.
The District Nurse Team promote wellbeing and independence to all our patients in an understandable and approachable way. We provide the most appropriate care, working alongside families, carers and other agencies.
You must be able to demonstrate sound clinical knowledge and the ability to apply evidenced based practice. You must be able to display effective communication skills with patients, family, carers as well as the wider multi professional workforce.
