We are seeking to appoint several registered nurses to support the implementation of the Newcastle Career Start Nursing Programme (CSNP). The CSNP is a Primary Care developmental programme with the successful candidates undertaking a 2 year individually structured training programme aimed at First Level registered Nurses wishing to gain the skills and experience required to work as a Practice Nurse in Primary Care.
Hours of work will be apportioned between supervised and unsupervised clinical practice within an allocated cluster of general practices (1 WTE CSN supporting clusters of practices with a combined patient list size of circa 30,000) and within structured university and in-practice professional development programmes.
The post will offer the successful candidate an opportunity to gain knowledge and skills working alongside an experienced nurse mentor within an assigned clustering of practices, providing clinical services according to the health needs of the population and appropriate to his/her level of experience.
The role requires an enthusiastic and committed individual who is prepared to be flexible and adaptable enough to work with diverse patient groups in a range of primary and community settings.
This post will be developed to a position where the post holder is able to act autonomously to look after patients with multiple comorbidities and be able to work across settings both in practice and the patients own home to deliver that care.
