Join the 1.5 million people who work within the NHS and Private Health Care...

Health Care Assistant (HCA)

As a HCA you can work with infants, children, young people and supporting registered nurses in the delivery of nursing care within a Hospital Setting. In a healthcare assistant role, you’re likely to carry out a number of duties from helping to feed and wash a patient, assist with testing urine or blood to perform ECG’s.

General Nurse (RGN)

An RGN Carries out a full range of registered nurse duties, including assessment, planning,
implementation and evaluation of the patient’s condition and care with support from the nurse in charge. Maintain the privacy and dignity of all patients whilst adhering to Trust and department policies, reporting any difficulties with these duties to senior staff. Monitors all patient care and treatment, maintaining high standards and quality at all times.

Staff Nurse

Managing patient care and recovery is the job of a Staff Nurse. Nurses work to help people who have suffered injuries, from accidents or illnesses. They may be the first health care professional patient’s come in contact with when they visit a hospital, clinic or medical facility. Nurses usually assess patient condition’s, take patient vitals and report back to doctors, so they can assess the patient more thoroughly.

Senior Staff Nurse

As a Senior Staff Nurse you will be responsible for the assessment, planning, implementation
and evaluation of programmes of care without direct supervision from senior staff. They are expected to be able to demonstrate procedures, mentor and supervise pre and post registration staff without direct supervision, leading the unit on a day to day basis in the absence of the Sister or Ward Matron.

Registered Mental Nurse (RMN)

As a RMN you are responsible for planning and providing support and medical and nursing care to people who have a range of mental health issues. Mental health nurses support people with issues ranging from anxiety and depression to personality and eating disorders or addiction to drugs or alcohol.

Nurse Practitioner (NP)

Nurse Practitioners are a senior type of practice nurse, who assist on all levels of patient care, usually within a GP surgery – they are able to diagnose and (often) prescribe treatment.

Their role is also educational – they must educate their patients about the importance of prevention rather than cure, and how to effectively carry out their prescribed treatments.

On top of this, Nurse Practitioners often carry our physical examinations, patient consultations, as well as leading the Nursing team within a given practice. They are a GPs first point of call in many cases for assistance, and can help to ease the workload on GPs and Registrars at extremely busy times. 

Ward Sister

The ward sister is the first level supervisor and team leader of the unit. She is directly accountable to the Nursing Superintendent through Deputy Nursing Superintendent for ward management and patient care.

Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS)

A clinical nurse specialist (CNS) is a venerable one-person show with five major responsibilities on their shoulders: Clinical practice, research, teaching, consulting, and management. Health care doesn’t operate with one set of guidelines, so a clinical nurse specialist job description is vital to the managed care movement. Because they’re also a patient advocate, it’s their job to coordinate money-saving services and resources but still provide optimal health outcomes.

Clinical Lead

Lead nurses, sometimes called charge nurses, coordinate nursing care for a specific unit or department within a medical facility. They have limited direct contact with patients, instead focusing on supervising employees, acting as a link between nursing staff and hospital management, and responding to questions or complaints from patients or family members. Some departments hire a single nurse to serve as lead, while others hire a lead nurse for each shift.

Head of Nursing

Director of nursing to organize and oversee all nursing operations of the facility. You will create a collaborative and efficient workplace with attention to quality standards and policies. There, all personnel will be able to do their best in caring for patients.

A director of nursing should have once been a hard-working and compassionate registered nurse who steadily developed their managerial and administrative skills. Being efficient, dedicated, a good listener and a problem-solver is what will open our door for you.

The goal is to foster an excellent environment that will support everyone in working to the benefit of hospital and patients alike.
