An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and motivated band 5 staff nurse, both newly qualified and experienced to join our team on Ward 28 Nephrology at The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.
Ward 28 is a 24 bedded ward specialising in Nephrology. You will also gain experience in caring for patients with a wide range of medical conditions as well as patients on dialysis.
We offer a high level of support in the department for new starters, along with a structured induction which will help to develop your skills and teach you the knowledge you will need to succeed. The post will initially provide you with 2 weeks supernumerary on the ward, 1 week of training in peritoneal dialysis and 1 week in the renal unit to observe and gain knowledge on haemodialysis. This will give you an opportunity to gain an insight into the speciality of the ward and our patients.
This is the perfect opportunity for newly qualified staff that are looking to progress a career within Nephrology services or consolidate their existing acute medical skills. Also for any experienced band 5 nurses who are looking for a positive change in career path, we would be delighted for you to join us.
We will offer you opportunities to develop in a supportive learning environment, a pre-ceptorship programme to enhance your development and the opportunity to experience different specialities within renal services. Our future vision is to enhance the clinical competencies of the ward staff and also train our nurses to be able to dialyse on the ward.
We are keen to support the career pathway that suits you and will be happy to discuss the potential of rotating to other specialist areas so you gain a variety of skills and experience.
Successful applicants will be joining a team who are committed to providing high quality care to patients within the renal service and who are constantly working at driving the service forward and improving patient care.
