Job description
Children\'s Nurse - RSCN/RN Child

Join a team of nurses for a rewarding career – 98% of staff agree that they are proud to work with the client.

“Happy, amazing, special and fun” are perhaps not the first thoughts that you might think about but this is exactly what the families think. Matched by their staff feeling “proud, rewarding and making a difference” by working in this special setting; this is a very different Nurse role.

Do you have experience in caring for children with life-limiting conditions, complex needs or chronic illnesses? Are you looking for a nursing role that will enable you to develop your skills but also gives space and time to build personal relationships with the children and young adults you care for? Do you want to work in team environment but know you are directly helping to make a difference?

If so, this incredibly fulfilling role is for you. A position where you can directly support putting children and families at the centre of all they do and directly help make the most of short and precious lives.

Children’s Nurse Requirements:

They provide respite, palliative and bereavement care for children living with life-limiting conditions. Their small, experienced care teams work on a one-to-one basis, having the time to build very special relationships and the unique opportunity to help families create lasting memories whilst they are at the hospice and between visits.

The children and young people you will care for have very complex health needs, enabling you to not only develop your clinical skills, including for example long-term ventilation and provide hands on clinical care but there is also plenty time for lots of fun! In fact, they encourage it - such as splashing and laughing in the hydrotherapy pool, playing ball games in the soft play, being creative in messy play, helping the children experience the wonders of the sensory room and going on fun days out.

Hours are worked on rotating shifts (up to 12.5 hours) including nights, weekends and bank holidays, with enhancements for night, weekend and bank holiday working. Although they are unable to provide fixed shifts, they aim to be as flexible as possible in shift patterns to enable staff to have a good work/life balance.
