We need Registered Nurses with recent acute experience who can work well in a fast paced environment with a close team, but also on their own initiative. You should have confidence and competence in the use of syringe-drivers and the giving of medication, as much of our support is around complex patient symptom management. We offer various shifts over week-days/weekends and nights. There is plenty of scope to further develop your skills in specialist palliative care and have access to our specialist education programme. So if you are enthusiastic, committed and looking to develop your knowledge and skills in specialist palliative care with an expert national charity, then this should be your next career move.
