Mental Health Nursing
Staff Nurse - Older Adult Mental Health
Salary: £43,727 – £49,357 per year
We have opportunities within Older Adult Mental Health continuing care services for motivated and enthusiastic Registered Mental Health Nurses to join our close-knit, multi-disciplinary team. We provide care for vulnerable Older Adults with complex needs, from intermediate and ongoing nursing care to end of life care.
As one of your team you will act as a practitioner with professional accountability to effectively plan, deliver and evaluate care for a group of residents with a range of conditions. Acting as a role model you will demonstrate the ability to apply research and evidence to promote best practice and ensure high quality care to our residents. Individuals at this level will be able to plan and deliver care for complex or high risk individuals within an inpatient setting and give guidance and support to less experienced staff. The role involves day to day shift leadership in the absence of the sister, requiring an ability to lead confidently. Electronic record-keeping is used across the service and the post-holder will therefore need to evidence a good standard of IT skills.
As a 1st Level Registered Mental Health Nurse, at least 2 years’ experience within this specialist area is desirable. Applications will be considered from newly/recently qualified nurses. For further information about the role please contact Alison Gamble, Ward Manager on 01534 443042.
In making an application for this role, you should note that the Government of Jersey is in the process of restructuring to modernise how we deliver public services. As we work to ensure we have the right structure for the future, we will also be reviewing our (HR) people policies and total reward structures (pay and other terms and conditions) to provide parity across all pay groups.
Closing date for applications is 05 February 2020.
