The Department of Nursing is seeking to appoint a Senior Lecturer to its BSc Hons Adult Nursing team. The Nursing department covers a range of undergraduate, post registration and professional development
programmes and has been recognised nationally since 2012 by the Student Nursing Times for the unrivalled
degree programmes that we offer. The ethos of the department is to put the student at the centre of what we
do, to ensure that our graduates are equipped for practice, and prepared for the challenges of the profession.
With over 100% employability rate for our graduates, our programmes are one of the most desirable and
applied to in the UK.
The successful applicant will be expected to support students across a range of programmes and work
collaboratively with both practice staff and other professionals within the Faculty, as well as NHS stakeholders
across the region to develop and deliver programmes which respond to service and policy requirements. The
BSc (Hons) Adult Nursing programme, which commenced in September 2011, has a reputation of high
standing and has been commended by the Nursing and Midwifery Council, achieving 96 % satisfaction by
students in the 2014 National Student Survey. The programme also achieved recognition in both the 2013
and 2015 Student Nursing Times awards as ‘Best Pre-Registration Provider’. The programme offers
qualifying students the opportunity to undertake a validated Acute Illness Management course as part of their
third year studies, thereby enhancing their clinical skills and employability. All staff are expected to teach
across the curriculum and engage with student support at a variety of levels. The Department’s CPD provision
includes Health Visiting and Community Health programmes, and an eclectic mix of shorter CPD courses.
