Renal Department - Registered Nurse (Rotational post)
The Renal department at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital is keen to recruit talented nurses to join our friendly, supportive and dynamic team. Clinical areas include Langley Ward, the Jack Pryor dialysis unit, the Home Therapies Department and the Cromer and District Hospital satellite dialysis unit. The department is expanding as we venture into a period of development which will expand our current facilities and therefore offer exciting new career opportunities.
We are offering a rotational post to enable nurses to work across our acute ward, the specialist dialysis units and home therapy. The Nephrology department is incredibly fortunate to have an in-house education Sister who provides a robust programme of induction and will deliver a comprehensive training package. You can expect a period of supernumerary training and will be well supported by experienced staff and clinical educators.
Our service consists of:
- A 33 bedded inpatient ward where the nurse will gain knowledge of caring for patients with acute kidney injury, diabetes and a range of medical conditions. Acute dialysis and plasma exchange treatments are provided here too. Nurses become well trained is complex discharge and mental health provision, helping patients to remain safe.
- 28 haemodialysis stations facilitate the outpatient dialysis service on the Jack Pryor Unit where you will be trained to deliver Haemodialysis therapy. This is supported by 9 additional haemodialysis stations at Cromer. This is a complex skill which nurses facilitate, giving patients the best outcomes.
- Patients on home dialysis and peritoneal dialysis are managed by the home team. As part of our rotation our nurses can work within and alongside this speciality team rounding their ability and expertise.
The renal department has a rich pool of Specialist Nurses keen to impart their knowledge helping you to enhance your patient care.
We are an established yet forward thinking and developing department and want you to come and be a part of our team.
“All the staff that nursed and treated me, without exception, were fantastic. They were totally professional and efficient but at the same time were compassionate, friendly and caring. I cannot praise them enough. They are true testament to their profession.”
Just think where your NNUH career could take you. Norfolk and Norwich university Hospital is the 6th largest acute hospital in the UK with new clinics and services being introduced each year, the possibilities are endless. With strong links to the University of East Anglia and Norwich Research Park we want to give our staff every opportunity and the support to achieve their potential. This also allows us to have an imaginative approach to our nursing teams, including Nurse Registrars and Nurse Consultants running their own clinics and Advanced Nurse Practitioners taking a leading role in the care of patients.
In Norwich a staggering 77% of people say they love their job. Although less than 2 hours from London and serviced by excellent transport links , Norwich is one of few UK cities that still retain a strong local identity and with that a strong sense of community – people walk down the street and say hello to each other, baristas remember our coffee order, you get to know about interesting local projects.
This strong sense of self along with excellent shopping, eating out, affordable house prices and excellent schooling is why Norwich has been ranked by the Guardian as the best city to work in.
