Band 6 Senior Staff Nurses needed for the Yeatman Community Hospital.

A very exciting and pioneering role has been developed by Dorset HealthCare through our Advance Practice Framework.

This role will enhance clinical practice and create new and innovative ways of working within our Community Hospitals.

This is a Specialist role for band 6 Nurses seeking opportunities for professional development in clinical practice.

Are you a caring and compassionate Registered Nurse at the top of your game looking for a fresh start and a new challenge?

We want you to be part of a team that helps shape the future of our hospital / services for the local community making it a sustainable and forward thinking Hub with beds for the long term.

The Hospital cares for a wide variety of patients, offering sub-acute medical, palliative care and rehabilitation. This is an exciting, vibrant and rewarding place to work where all are focused on providing the highest standards of patient care and experience.

We are committed to providing excellent standards of care to our patients and we know that to enable us to do this, the continuous professional development of staff in a supportive environment has to be a top priority for us, and it is!

You will need enthusiasm and a commitment to provide the highest standards of care to patients, relatives and carers, and the ability to provide professional clinical leadership.

This new role forms part of a dedicated career pathway requiring the undertaking of:

Applicants who subscribe to the DBS update service and are able to present a valid DBS certificate will not incur a charge.

We can also offer you:

  • Dedicated career pathways and great opportunities for continuing professional development
