Salary Range:

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. In this context, the School of Nursing and Midwifery is seeking to appoint an outstanding academic or practitioner who will join a highly professional and motivated team to teach across our nursing programmes and to support new and existing developments within the Practice Learning and Partnership team. The role of L/SL Adult Nursing (Practice Facilitation) is fundamental in promoting quality of patient care, through the development and maintenance of an effective learning culture to support education of student nurses and supervisors/assessors in clinical practice.

The focus of this post will primarily involve supporting students and practice supervisors/assessors in existing practice placements within the private, independent and primary care sectors. You will be required to liaise with a range of stakeholders to develop and enhance links between education and practice, and to support the development of new and substantial student placement capacity for pre-registration nursing programmes. The post holder will also be committed to promoting academic enquiry, helping develop critical thinking in students by supporting safe, effective and evidence-based practice. This will 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.

Participating in professional scholarship and re-validation will also be essential. The candidate should be able to draw upon his or her own subject knowledge to design teaching sessions that maximise the integration of theory to practice.
