We have an exciting new post for a Nursing Associate to work within our inpatients ward. We are looking for a Registered Nursing Associate who has completed their Nursing Associate Foundation Degree and is now on the NMC register, holding a NMC PIN. The individual will be someone who wants to make a difference to people with life limiting illness, having the opportunity to provide high quality care to patients and their families and to be part of a supportive multi-disciplinary team, which provides pain and symptom control, respite care, complex psychological support and end of life care.
Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice provides specialist care and support on the main hospice site in the inpatient unit, day hospice and outpatient clinics as well as in people’s homes, care homes, local prisons and at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woolwich.
Sound communication and interpersonal skills are essential in this post, as is the ability to work using your own initiative in prioritising the clinical case load, providing clear instruction and support to colleagues, health care assistants and student Nursing Associates within the unit.
As a reflective practitioner with a commitment to the provision of excellent care, this post offers the opportunity to develop your skills within a specialist setting.
The Hospice is committed to the development and education of all staff and has excellent educational links with local Colleges and Universities as well as regular internal training provision. If you are interested in working in an organisation which provides opportunities for career progression, Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice is for you.
