Ward Nurse jobs: frequently asked questions

Welcome to our Ward Nurse jobs page, featuring all the latest roles throughout the UK, as well as frequently asked questions below.

What is a Ward Nurse?

Ward Nurse is essentially the same as a General Nurse, Staff Nurse or RGN – except for the fact that a Ward Nurse always operates within a hospital ward, supporting patients with all kinds of ailments.

Ward Nurses can work in both NHS hospitals and private hospitals.

What does a Ward Nurse do?

The responsibilities of a Ward Nurse vary, but may include:

• Recording the condition of patients

• Administering medication and injections

• Helping doctors with assessments and treatment plans

• Managing discharges from hospital wards, or transfers to other wards

• Communicating with patients and their families about their ongoing health

• Supporting students and junior nurses

Ward Nurses typically work shifts that may include evenings, weekends and holidays.

What qualifications do you need to become a Ward Nurse?

To become a Ward Nurse you need to be registered with the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC). And this requires a nursing degree.

These courses last three years and involve a mix of academic study and placements. You can study at universities and colleges throughout the UK.

Beyond your degree and the practical experience you’ll gain during your studies, no extra experience is required to land your first ward nursing job.

How much do Ward Nurses earn?

Ward Nurses earn approximately £24,907 a year once qualified – a Band 5 salary – which rises incrementally every year until you reach the top of your banding.

From there, more experience and qualifications can lead you towards a Band 6 salary of around £37,000. Band 7 salaries, which offer beyond £43,000, are available for the most experienced, qualified and specialised Ward Nurses.

You also have the option to work as a bank or agency Ward Nurse, either alongside your regular job or in a full-time capacity. This often offers a better hourly rate of pay – especially if you have lots of experience – but you won’t get the same NHS benefits package.

Privately, Ward Nurses tend to earn a similar salary, although anecdotally it’s said to be a little higher.
