Urology Associate Nurse

Job Reference: 425-A-20-37509

Sheffield Children's NHS Foundation Trust
Sheffield Children's Hospital
£24,214 - £30,112 per annum pro rata

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced paediatric nurse to join the urology nursing team. The urology nurses are a busy team, who provide care for hundreds of patients every year.

This is a varied post working alongside a large multidisciplinary team within the trust including medical staff, nursing staff, physiotherapists and occupational therapists. The post holder will be expected to care for a variety of patients in both an inpatient and outpatient settings, who require urological input such as, dressing removals, catheterisation training and catheter care, as well as the supervision and competency training of staff within the trust. The post holder will also be expected to provide specialist training for schools and families on urological cares such as, catheterisation and the care of supra pubic catheters/ureterostomies.

The role requires a good understanding of the evidence based care of urological conditions and procedures and the ability to plan and implement complex care packages for some patients such as, spinal cord injuries. The role will eventually require the post holder to perform diagnostic testing such as, non-invasive bladder scanning.

This is a developmental role and there is potential for the post holder to enrol on the non-medical prescribing course with a view to doing a nurse led clinic and the role becoming permanent.

The successful applicant should be keen to expand their knowledge and enjoy a challenge; however comprehensive training will be given in all aspects of urology care, alongside the established urology and continence team.
