Nursing at Priory Healthcare

At Priory Healthcare, we’re passionately committed to making a real and lasting difference for everyone we support. But that’s just the start. As a recognised leader in the healthcare sector, we’re equally passionate about harnessing the potential of everyone on our team – including our rapidly growing community of RMN’s.

So join us and we can promise you one of the most dynamic and supportive career environments in the sector.

We are already the largest mental health provider in Europe and treat upwards of 80 conditions in over 275 facilities around the country. But look beyond our size and you will also discover an unrivalled reputation for providing quality, inspiring innovation and delivery value for our service users.

What does this mean for you? More than you might imagine.

For a start, there’s greater clinical diversity here than anywhere outside of the NHS. This offers you the chance to develop your career at the forefront of nursing practice in one or  more of our six specialist areas – Acute Mental Healthcare, Secure, Rehabilitation and Complex Care, Eating Disorders and Child and Adolescent Mental Health.

You will enjoy excellent learning and development resources, too. In addition to benefiting from our award-winning e-learning programme, your structured career progression could include supported study for specialist diplomas, preceptorships if you are newly qualified, a range of other externally accredited courses, the option of becoming a trainer on your own site, and much more besides.

Our working environment and culture are also exceptional. You will be part of a multidisciplinary team of doctors, psychiatrists, therapists and other health care specialists. We don’t just work together. We listen to each other, share ideas, explore new ways of doing things and actively pursue innovation and excellence is all that we do. So while the work can be incredibly demanding, you will never lack the support, collaboration and encouragement you need to perform to your best and achieve your true potential.

As for recognition and rewards, they are everything you would expect from an organisation that values your expertise and commitment. And your career prospects? Well, the sheer scope and scale of our behavioural care services – and the pace of our development as a business – means that you can grow as far and fast as we do.
