Staff Nurses, Band 5 - Bromley and Orpintgton
Be part of a team that supports each other to be our best for patients. Join Team King’s, and we’ll encourage and enable you to keep growing your skills, experience and knowledge.
About the role
Actively involved in day-to-day patient care, you’ll work with multi-disciplinary team members and liaise with colleagues in other specialities to maintain high standards and ensure the delivery and continuity of evidence-based nursing care.
As well as providing nursing advice and support to patients, you’ll take part in education and training programmes relating to the needs of patients and their carers and work with other clinical staff to identify and address any knowledge gaps. You’ll also have the opportunity to contribute to departmental research, service development and quality improvement projects.
As a Registered Nurse, you bring clinical experience gained in an acute setting. With a patient-centred approach, you should be able to communicate effectively, and with compassion, to patients and their relatives with different levels of understanding. Adaptable and responsive to changing needs, you have the ability to work on your own initiative as well as being a strong team player. Ideally, you’ll also bring supervision, teaching experience and good leadership skills.
