Ways to Extend Your Nursing Skills; Advertising Feature; Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust Is Looking to Recruit Newly Qualified and Band 5 and 6 Nurses with the Right Ambition and Skills to Work Less Than an Hour Away from Central London


Byline: NIKI CHESWORTH

WHAT are you looking for in your next nursing post? If you want career development, opportunities to extend your clinical skills, and a chance to earn a greater understanding of and ability to manage patient pathways, then Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust believes it is offering the ideal opportunity for you.

As one of the first Trusts to integrate both acute and community services, Buckinghamshire says it offers unique opportunities for those forging a nursing career there.

With two acute hospitals, five community hospitals, a hospice and care provided throughout the community, including people's own homes, the Trust offers a range of different experiences, which it says "you just would not be able to get elsewhere".

The multi-professional preceptorship ensures all newly qualified nurses are given the skills and competencies to move from a band 5 to a band 6 practitioner.

Career pathways: All staff nurses are given visible and transparent career pathways, and a role that will lead to development.
