Salary Range:

The School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work brings together Adult, Child, Mental Health and Learning Disability Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work into one vibrant and dynamic community. Our aim is to provide a high-quality learning experience for our students to enable them to realise their ambitions to become registered professionals and to continue their development through a range of continuing professional development opportunities. We are committed to providing a supportive environment so that our students can develop the knowledge, behaviour and skills to provide nursing care that is person-centred, compassionate, safe and effective.

The School is seeking to appoint two part-time Lecturers in Adult Nursing to teach various aspects of adult nursing but in particular to support the NMCs Standards of proficiency for registered nurses, particularly Annexe B. We are particularly seeking to appoint registered nurses with current clinical expertise, preferably linked to the teaching of clinical skills as indicated above.

Successful applicants will contribute to other areas of work within the School and wider Faculty depending on their expertise.

You will be committed to high quality, evidence-based learning and teaching and be able to facilitate learning of a broad range of adult nursing principles, knowledge, behaviour and skills and take on the role of personal academic tutor. You will be expected to contribute to modules in the pre-registration undergraduate programme and our nursing associate apprentice programme. You will also provide support to students during periods of practice placements and act as an academic assessor. An under-pinning principle of our work is the importance of the student experience and we would expect you to share this value and work in ways that will enhance it.

This is an ideal opportunity for those who wish to support the development of students in both practice and university settings. Successful applicants will be supported to undertake the Postgraduate Certificate Academic in Practice.

The post holder is required to be current on the NMC register as an adult nurse and will be expected to have a minimum of a first degree in a relevant discipline.
