Lecturer (Teaching) in Adult Nursing

Opening Date:
11 Apr 2019
Closing Date:
12 May 2019
Salary Range:

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a dynamic, innovative and experienced nurse to join the highly successful team within the Three Counties School of Nursing and Midwifery.

The post holder will be committed to promoting academic enquiry, helping develop critical thinking in students by supporting safe, effective and evidence-based practice. Whilst the appointee will have responsibility for classroom-based teaching, there is also a focus on promoting quality of patient care, through the development and maintenance of an effective learning culture in practice by supporting the education of student nurses and supervisors/assessors predominately in the independent, voluntary and general practice sectors.

The University of Worcester has a reputation for contemporary and innovative Nursing and Midwifery provision. Our NMC approved programmes are nationally recognised for their high quality, student satisfaction and sustained high employability of our alumni.

You will liaise with a range of stakeholders to develop and enhance links between education and practice, relating specifically to the pre-registration nursing programme. As an enthusiastic and motivated nurse, this role will also provide a platform for you to develop your knowledge and skills as an educator within a forward thinking University, which values and encourages continuous development of its staff.

Selection Methods:

Short-listed candidates will be invited to interview and will be asked to deliver a twenty minute teaching session to a small panel role-playing 3rd year nursing students on the following topic: ‘How will the Standards for Student Supervision and Assessment (SSSA) impact on student learning in primary care and the independent sector.’

The Chair of this group will provide feedback on the presentation to the interview panel.
