We have several exciting opportunities for Senior Staff Nurses to join our team in opening a brand-new hospital in London, Nuffield Health at St Bartholomew's Hospital, opening in 2022.

  • Take charge of a shift, co-ordinating and delivering work activities and leading clinical colleagues and students, in accordance with skill mix.

  • Deputise for Clinical Leader during absence.

Registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council, with cardiothoracic surgical specialist skills training should include postgraduate qualifications and a minimum of ILS, ideally ALS. You will have extensive experience in managing level 1 patients, be accustomed to being the shift Nurse in Charge and have experience in mentoring. You've also got extensive knowledge and will have experience working in your current setting at a senior level. You'll be accountable for leading, motivating, educating and supervising the nursing and multidisciplinary team.
