MCNS - Senior Nurse Range C
 

Marie Curie is here for people living with any terminal illness and their families. We offer expert care, guidance and support to help them get the most from the time they have left.

As a Senior Nurse with Marie Curie, you’ll support a team of nursing staff, supporting people in their time of greatest need, to meet their medical, social, spiritual and emotional needs. It’s all about giving patients the best possible quality of life.

This is a great development role for someone ready to take their next step from a clinical role into a nursing management role, sharing your nursing and palliative care knowledge to really influence and shape patient care across the region.

In this key role, supported by the Clinical Nurse Manager, you’ll deliver day to day support to a great team of Marie Curie nurses and healthcare assistants. This will include training and development, investigating incidents and caseload management and support to the Co-ordinators in our local co-ordination office in Newcastle. Along with the Clinical Nurse Manager you will be responsible for the delivery of the Marie Curie Nursing Service in the above areas.  You will deputise for the Clinical Nurse Manager in her absence.

A confident communicator and calm decision maker, you’ll need experience and knowledge in palliative care and community services, together with well-developed assessment and planning skills. The ability to prioritise your work, whilst juggling a variety of changing demands, is vital.

The role is largely office based in Newcastle Hospice, although you must be willing to travel to various venues across the north east to meet with nursing teams and attend relevant End of Life Care meetings. The ability to drive with access to a vehicle insured for business use is therefore essential.

So if you’re ready to take the next step in your career, then this is the role for you.

Every day of your life matters – from the first to the last. When you work for Marie Curie, you understand that better than ever. We’re a passionate, committed and diverse team of more than 4,400 staff and 12,000 volunteers, here for people living with any terminal illness, and their families. We offer expert care, guidance and support, to help them get the most from the time they have left.

Everyone knows our daffodil, but it’s our warmth, creativity and care that touch lives. Here, we take the time to really get to know the people we care for and those who love them. And we do whatever it takes to give them the final days and hours they deserve.
