Planned Care are delighted that as part of a recent workforce review , we have the opportunity to recruit a number of Advanced Nurse Practitioners into our Community Nursing Portfolios.

The role of ANP is new to the Community Nursing teams, to ensure we employ the best candidate who meets the requirements of the role, we are not only looking for applicants who already hold the ANP qualification, but are also extending the opportunity to those who are working towards this and are already completing a recognised pathway.

This role has been introduced due to the increasing complexity of Community Nursing and the need for us to employ highly skilled, autonomous practitioners to address this. We are looking for someone keen and willing to work within a new service delivery model and develop the role to support our teams.

The role of ANP for the Community Nursing teams has been developed around the four pillars of advanced practice and will be held by our most experienced and competent nurses. This role will bridge the gap between planned and unplanned care, providing assessment, diagnosis and treatment planning, to avoid unnecessary admissions to hospital.

You will be working as part of an MDT, including community nurses, therapists, social workers and GP's so it is essential that you have excellent communication skills and the ability to disseminate information in a clear and concise way.
