We are excited to be recruiting nurses to work on one of our cardiac surgical wards in a world-leading cardiac centre in the heart of the City of London where they will join our team of dedicated staff, caring for patients pre and post cardiothoracic surgery

Main duties of the job

Are you an enthusiastic and motivated registered nurse? As a teaching hospital, personal development is highly valued and we will work with you to ensure you have access to all of the Trust's education resources including our education programmes and leadership opportunities. We will actively encourage your career and professional development by supporting courses that are relevant to your clinical speciality. Rotation into Critical care is a possibility after 8 months -1 year of working on the ward also following discussion. Successful candidates will be supported by Junior Sisters, the Ward Manager, Practice Development Nurse and Advanced Clinical Practitioners.

We are proud of the fact that our nurses gain invaluable experience here at St Bartholomew's Hospital, through which they are ideally placed to move into more senior roles, or acquire new skills in other departments and we welcome interest from both newly qualified nurses and nurses who have been registered for longer who are looking for a change.

Ready to take on a new challenge? We look forward to having you join us.
