Salary Range:

The School of Health Sciences and Social Work, University of Portsmouth, continues to expand its pre-registration nursing provision to meet the increased demand for adult nurses and intends to recruit two cohorts (September and January) to our NMC approved BN (Adult) programme. The School has a clear vision for the future; to be a centre of excellence for simulated clinical education, innovation and research and our simulation facilities are exceptional: https://vimeo.com/195596270

To help us achieve our vision, we are seeking a number of Lecturers and Senior Lecturers in Adult Nursing to contribute to teaching excellence and innovation, related to the nursing care of adults and research in the simulated clinical environment. The successful candidates will be able to effectively articulate their contribution to improving patient services, through education, research and innovation. We actively encourage and support those staff who are ambitious in their own career development, through doctoral studies.

We encourage applications from those with specialist interest in one or more of the following:

  • Physiology and nursing management of long term conditions
  • Comprehensive and systematic history taking and physical assessment
  • Underpinning physical, psychological and social sciences
  • Nursing care and management of specialist patients groups (Learning disabilities, paediatrics, older adults, mental health)

For Lecturer or Senior Lecturer roles, recent experience of facilitating student-centred nursing education in higher education is desirable, along with the motivation and ability to innovate and evaluate our adult pre-registration curriculum as it progresses. For all roles, contemporary knowledge of nursing including working in partnership with service users and their carers is essential.
