This is an exciting opportunity to join the School as a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer in Adult Nursing. The role requires a motivated, committed and student-focused individual who is keen to play a key role in the provision of high-quality, evidence-informed nursing and nursing associate education within this vibrant department.

We have exciting programmes newly validated for student nurses (BSc & MSc), student nursing associates and aspiring Advanced Clinical Practitioners as well as BSc & MSc programmes in Contemporary Nursing. We are highly commended for our engagement with practice partners and service users and we welcome applications from NMC Registered Nurses (Adult) who wish to join this forward-looking team.

Main Duties & Responsibilities

You will contribute to the development, delivery and evaluation of learning and teaching activity in Adult Nursing, mainly Pre-registration Nursing (BSc & MSc-including apprenticeship) and the Nursing Associate Degree Apprenticeship programme with the possibility of contributing to short courses and CPPD programmes.

At Senior Lecturer level you would be expected to take on Module Leadership.

You will use effective learning techniques to engage and support students, including supporting recruitment and assessment as required. Research, publications and presenting are important elements of the role. We embody a collaborative and compassionate ethos and you will contribute to that, also building effective working relationships with local partners and external agencies. We support all our staff achieving Fellowship of AdvanceHE and gaining recognised teaching qualifications.

Skills and experience needed

You will have experience in supporting student learning in either a practice or classroom setting, and it would be advantageous if this were for Nursing students.

For the Senior Lecturer you’ll also demonstrate experience of facilitating student learning in a University setting (e.g. student nurses, student nursing associates).

It’s key to have knowledge of current NMC requirements and standards of proficiency, and for the Senior Lecturer also evidence of evidence-informed teaching practice. A record or evidence of publications would be desirable. You will be able to demonstrate evidence of teamworking and working autonomously as well as having excellent written and verbal communication skills.

Qualifications required

You will be a Registered Nurse with the NMC as an Adult Nurse and hold an Honours Degree (or equivalent) or higher level qualification in a relevant area.

For the Senior Lecturer post, a Masters Degree or a Level 7 qualification such as a PgDip is essential and a teaching qualification desirable.
