An opportunity has arisen within the Neonatal Service for an experienced clinical development nurse with wide mentorship experience and evidence of staff education and development. In this role you will continue to develop your teaching and mentorship skills in the clinical area and the classroom, supporting the team to induct nursing and midwifery students and new staff nurses to medical and surgical neonatal nursing. Working as part of our practice development team you will facilitate study days, develop learning packages, implement change in clinical practice and gain audit experience and support junior members of the team to learn these skills. You will deputise for the Practice Development Nurse, where needed, attending Trust and Service meetings, assisting in the preparation of data to evidence staff training and development. 50% of your working time is non-clinical to support these activities. You will continue to develop team management skills as Nurse in Charge within a regional neonatal service, taking charge on a regular basis.
You are a role model and ambassador for high standards of clinical practice and professional behaviour. You’ll need to be able to take the lead and act on your own initiative, to assess and plan how to meet goals and objectives for yourself, learners, members of the practice development team and the neonatal service. You will have excellent communication skills and demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively and professionally with families and within the multidisciplinary team, both verbally and in writing. You will be able to give constructive feedback to all multidisciplinary team members to effect ongoing and continuous improvement in patient safety and the quality of patient care and support junior members of the practice development team to develop these skills themselves.
