Here’s more about the role and what we’re looking for; 

Are you interested in a new challenge? Do you want to join a forward thinking, competent, patient focused, nursing team?

An exciting opportunity has arisen for Registered Nurses to join our friendly nursing team on ward 409.

Ward 409 is an 18 bed acute, fast paced medical ward which specialises in diabetes and endocrinology. We care for acutely ill patients with many medical complications. We also have general medicine patients – allowing staff to maximise their skills and increase their knowledge.

Ward 409 is a fantastic place for nurses to take the next steps in their career with many new learning opportunities. Our nurses are supported by the clinical education team to excel within diabetes care and knowledge. We work closely with the diabetic specialist nurses to enhance our knowledge as a team and provide great patient centred care.

During your first month on the ward you will be supported through with an induction and orientation period where you can gain knowledge about the ward and diabetes care which we provide. In the near future the senior nursing team will be happy to support you personally and professionally to achieve all your career goals. We are able to offer many exciting challenges and can assist with further training; some of which include IV competency, Central Venous Access Device, acutely ill patient management courses and tissue viability & wound management training.

We are looking for confident, reliable, enthusiastic individuals whom are keen to develop themselves further in their career.
