We are looking for a Registered Nurse to join our multidisciplinary team on our dedicated Respiratory ward.   With strong clinical leadership and a culture of teamwork we believe our nurses are our greatest asset and we want to invest in you and your development.

What is so exciting about Respiratory Medicine at NNUH?

We have some really innovative things happening as we continue to expand and develop our Acute Respiratory Service (ARC).   We are in the process of implementing two designated 6 bedded ARC bays one to care for up to 12 patients on Non-invasive ventilation (NIV).  Part of the development of this service is to offer opti-flow and tracheostomy care.

The biggest investment however will be in the education and development of the nursing team by embedding a robust training scheme to support nursing staff to take on these enhanced skills and provide outstanding care for patients.

With an investment in technology we are revolutionizing patient treatment and freeing up Nurses time – no manual blood pressure– we have the technology to do it for us!

This is an idea opportunity for a nurse who wants a long term career in HDU as the ward caters for more acute patients, we would support a nurse wanting to learn skills and look towards future career development.

Future career opportunities are varied and encouraged as Respiratory Medicine is at the forefront of developing specialist roles for nurses taking a leading role in the care of patients.  We also take an imaginative approach to our nursing teams and were the first speciality to introduce a Nurse Registrar into the team. 

The respiratory team is committed to providing the best possible care to our patients and this requires dedication from all our staff and this role will be no exception.  We will expect you to share our passion for achieving excellence in the care of our patients


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.

Why Norwich?

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.
