Lecturer in Nursing (Health Visiting/School Nursing)

Opening Date:
20 Sep 2016
Closing Date:
7 Oct 2016
Salary Range:

The School of Nursing and Midwifery is a vibrant academic community and the main provider of nursing education in the North East of Scotland. The School is housed in a state of the art building designed to simulate both clinical and community settings providing a stimulating learning environment.

Our vision is to provide dynamic and transformational learning, teaching and research that makes a leading contribution to improving the health and well-being of local, national and global communities. We aim to engage with key partners to develop, deliver and disseminate high quality research that is of value to society, those using health and social care services, and the professions of nursing and midwifery.

The lecturing role is primarily to be a member of the health visiting and school nursing course teams. The role of the health visitor and school nurse has been refocused by national work led from Scottish Government and NHS Education for Scotland in response to the Children Young People (Scotland) Act, 2014 to prepare practitioners to undertake the role of the Named Person (health visiting) and function at masters level. Our educational provision has therefore been redeveloped in response to the National driver. The post holder will also be expected to contribute to the wider School portfolio which includes undergraduate nurse education, scholarly activity and research.
