An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Advance Nursing Practitioner team within Interventional Cardiology at the Golden Jubilee National Hospital.
As one of the largest Interventional Cardiology centres in the UK, and as part of the Heart & Lung Centre for the West of Scotland, the service demands expert professional nursing input to ensure safe, effective and person centred care is delivered to each patient every time.
We want to find talented nurses with the commitment and compassion to make a real difference. We are proud of the quality of our services and we want the right people to help us maintain that standard of care delivery.
We are seeking high quality, motivated and expert nurses to fill a variety of flexible Advanced Practice roles, both full time and part time, to provide professional autonomous nursing practice within our department. The care required encompasses nurse-led outpatient pre admission assessment clinics to in-patient triage, assessment and care planning and onwards to nurse-led discharge and onward referral of a wide range of complex cardiac conditions in elective, urgent and emergency settings.
Applicants must have significant senior experience in acute cardiology, and preferably within an interventional setting. Applicants must be proficient in non medical prescribing and physical assessment or working towards gaining these proficiencies, and must have demonstrated critical thinking and analytical skills as gained through Masters study or equivalent experiential learning.
These evolving roles offer the opportunity to be central to ongoing service improvement within Interventional Cardiology and therefore applicants must be committed to proactive service and professional development.
It is essential that applicants meet the person specification as described in the attached job description, and must demonstrate these skills and attributes within their application form.
The posts will be required to work within normal working hours with variable shifts as required throughout the day across Monday to Friday.
