Leaders In Care is seeking a Practice Nurse to work just outside of Stoke on Trent, and the permanent position comes with an hourly pay rate of £18.93 to £20.63, with a £2,500 welcome bonus for all nurses (T&Cs apply). Does this sound like your next nursing role?
We are looking to place a Practice Nurse who will provide nursing care for patients across their hospital/unit. We're particularly interested in candidates who have worked for the NHS. Taking the critical role in the provision and facilitation of a physical well-being clinic for all patients (e.g., health screening, smoking reduction/cessation, fitness, health and weight management), the practice nurse will also be expected to provide general interventions to patients so you will need a varied range of practice skills including phlebotomy experience.
Primary responsibilities include liaising with the GP and consultants, providing a response to minor injuries and taking the lead for infection control. You will provide nursing support, mentorship, advice and guidance to members of the multi-disciplinary team to ensure high standards of care are provided to all patients. A flexible approach to hours of duty is needed to meet service needs.
Besides, the practice nurse must:
- Ensure each patient has an individual care plan and risk assessment
- Administer medicines safely
- Ensure clinical documentation is of a high standard
- Take appropriate action when working with vulnerable adults and children, liaising with appropriate agencies as required
To be eligible for this Practice Nurse role, you must hold a relevant nursing qualification (RGN) and a current NMC Pin. You will also need to have training and experience as a practice nurse in a GP or primary care setting. Some health-promotion experience is highly desirable, as is the experience of teaching others.
