Are you considering a career in Intensive Care as the next step on your Band 5 pathway or as a newly qualified Registered Nurse?

At Imperial, our Critical Care department is in a period of expansion to 100 ICU beds across units. We are therefore looking to recruit into multiple new nursing roles.

As a result, we have reviewed and redeveloped our new starter pathway, to ensure it meets the needs for new to practice Registered Nurses and those that may not have previous ICU or acute hospital experience. What we do ask is that you have a desire to be developed, learn and are able to thrive in a busy, acute, challenging environment.

We provide new recruits to the specialty with a 10-week induction programme, during which you will be supported to gain IV competence. Classroom-based training takes place alongside 6 weeks of supernumerary practice. Additionally, you will attend study days in pain, epidural management, and Immediate Life Support. You will complete the programme having acquired the essential knowledge and skills to enable you to practice safely and autonomously as an ICU nurse.

This structured pathway will prepare you for enrolment to the university based Critical Care Course, which provides the opportunity to progress to a Band 6 role.

St Mary's Hospital Adult Intensive Care has 32 beds, which incorporates the Major Trauma ICU for North-West London and the regional vascular service.

Main duties of the job
