Salary Range:

This is an exciting opportunity for an exceptional and experienced nurse, with evidence of excellent professional and educational practice to join a team of enthusiastic and committed staff within the Department of Nursing and Midwifery.

In developing our strategy for the launch of the new NMC standards for the future registered nurse and the implementation of the nursing associate role, the department is seeking candidates who uphold the overall mission of the University by providing high quality, accessible learning opportunities, promoting academic enquiry and advancement of knowledge. The University of Worcester has been chosen as a Fast Follower site for implementation of the new Nursing Associate role and so a candidate with experience in apprenticeships is highly desirable for this particular post.

The post holder will work closely with practice and university colleagues to develop the discipline of nursing through strong collaborative partnerships and contributing to transformational agendas reflecting the diverse and challenging nature of health and social care. Our desire as an academic community is to develop critical, competent and compassionate practitioners who can make a positive contribution to and impact upon nursing practice.

By providing expert knowledge, the post holder will be expected to teach and lead agreed modules, assess students, supervise undergraduate research studies, and engage in curriculum development.

Research development will be an important element of the role and opportunities will exist to develop this agenda through effective partnerships with experienced researchers within the institute.

Staff within the department contribute to the NMC approved degree and it is essential that the appointee is able to adopt a flexible approach to the subjects they teach.
