We are looking to appoint a Band 5 Registered Nurse to fill the School Health Staff Nurse post in the South East of Dorset (Bournemouth).  This position is to work between 23 to 37.5 hours per week term time only and is offered for a fixed term basis of one year.

The service is committed to delivering high quality care to children, young people and their families.

As a School Health Staff Nurse you will have your own caseload and report to a Band 6 Specialist Practitioner in School Nursing. You will also support other team members within your own team and participate in the School Nursing Service Core programme, underpinned by the Healthy Child Programme.  You will work in partnership with the Local Authority, Early Intervention Services, Childrens Services, Schools, Families and other agencies.

You will be required to work closely with neighbouring School Nursing teams in Dorset, to provide services in response to identified needs.

Interviews will be held on the 7th February 2018.
