Nursing Home Nurse jobs: frequently asked questions

Welcome to our Nursing Home Nurse jobs page, featuring a wide variety of roles currently available across the UK. Here are some handy FAQs for anyone looking for more information on joining this profession or developing your career.

What is a Nursing Home Nurse?

A Nursing Home Nurse provides support for people living in nursing homes.

Residents can include people with physical disabilities, people with mental health issues like dementia, or the elderly.

What binds all residents of any nursing home is the fact that they’re no longer able to safely look after themselves within their own home.

Nursing Home Nurses can either work across multiple sites within a specific geographic area (these roles are often advertised as ‘Peripatetic Nurses’), or within a single home.

Positions are regularly available within both the private and public sector – but nowadays, the majority of positions are actually offered in the private or charity sectors.

It’s worth noting that although the terms ‘care homes’ and ‘nursing homes’ are often used interchangeably, they do technically mean slightly different things.

Residents of a care home don’t necessarily have specific medical needs requiring regular medical attention – whereas nursing home residents do.

That means nursing homes always have Registered General Nurses (RGNs) on site, 24 hours a day, and tend to be more expensive for residents.

What does a Nursing Home Nurse do?

The nature of your role can vary greatly depending on the residents you support and their unique needs.

Importantly, unlike a general nursing position in a hospital supported by a wide variety of medical staff and facilities, you could have far more individual responsibility in your role.

You might solely oversee the activities of many staff and will need to create and manage healthcare plans for many different residents.

At some homes you will also be required to provide end-of-life care on a regular basis, which makes RGN jobs in nursing homes especially challenging.

Broadly speaking, your responsibilities could otherwise include:

• Creating and overseeing care plans – taking into account the medical histories of each patient

• Educating residents on their ongoing health and care plans

• Administering medication and injections

• Performing regular health checks, including checking vital signs and conducting blood tests

• Performing medical procedures where necessary

• Dealing with residents’ families about the health and care plans of their loved ones

• Planning resident activities according to their personal healthcare needs

• Arranging hospital transfers where necessary

Full-time and part-time positions are abundant, as are bank and agency positions – so Nursing Home Nurses can work with a great degree of flexibility.

There is also a severe labour shortage which means agency Nurses are in high demand.

How do you become a Nursing Home Nurse?

Although care homes often employ a variety of healthcare professionals, support workers and Nurses, employers looking for a Nursing Home Nurses are normally specifically seeking a Registered Nurse.

To become a Registered Nurse you will need a nursing degree, which you can study for at a variety of universities throughout the UK.

Once completed, you must register with the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC).

In most cases, simply being a qualified Nurse will equip you with everything you need for a Nursing Home Nurse position.

But some nursing homes, depending on the services they provide, may require some more specific experience.

For anyone eager to become a Nursing Home Nurse, you’ll do your chances no harm by seeking out some part-time work as a support worker at a local nursing home.

How much does a Nursing Home Nurse earn?

Nursing Home Nurses within NHS-funded establishments earn the same salary as a General Nurse in any other NHS setting.

That means you will earn a Band 5 salary – which currently starts at £24,214 a year.

Your salary rises incrementally every year until you reach the top of your banding, which is over £30,000.

However, only a small percentage of care homes are actually publically run nowadays.

The vast majority are run either by charities or private businesses, and pay, as a result, is unregulated.

Nonetheless, it’s estimated that the average annual salary in the UK is currently around £35,000 a year.

After gaining some experience as a Nursing Home Nurse, you can start applying for a Senior Nursing Home Nurse position, which could see you earn well beyond £40,000 a year.

Nursing Home Managers tend to be former Nurses too, so this is a career with a variety of long-term prospects.

With the private sector dominating the provision of residential nursing homes, salaries and benefits differ from one job to the next.

That’s why you’ll need to do your research on every position, and every home.
