Are you an Advanced Nurse Practitioner ready to expand and develop new generalist skills and build on your experience?
Could your nursing skills and experience help us to achieve our vision of becoming a centre of excellence in remote and rural healthcare?
This exciting opportunity may well be for you. An Advanced Nurse Practitioner post has arisen for suitably qualified, experienced and forward thinking nurse to work in a supported environment on the Island of North Ronaldsay, Orkney. The successful applicant will be able to evidence up to date clinical knowledge and skills and have an interest in working in a remote and rural setting, working autonomously with support of weekly GP visits and the wider Isles Network of Care.
The Isles Network of Care was set up in 2010 to provide a system of support to practitioners working on the smaller islands of Orkney. Practitioners meet weekly via videoconferencing to discuss clinical and administrative issues, review cases, share good practice and undertake significant event analysis etc.
Orkney is an archipelago of islands with the majority of the 22,000 population living on the Orkney Mainland and approximately 2,200 people live on the outer islands. NHS Orkney has 10 practices on the outer islands serving communities that range in size from 55 to 600, North Ronaldsay has approximately 55. The larger island practices are staffed by GPs and the smaller islands by Advanced Nurse Practitioners with visiting GPs.
The Isles of Orkney offer a wonderful opportunity to provide personalised nursing care to the population and primary care with continuity while working as part of a mutually supportive team. We welcome applications from people interested in residing on North Ronaldsay or commuting to work on the islands. This post is eligible for relocation costs.
The successful candidate will be adaptable, resourceful and confident working without a hospital or GP at hand and be responsible for assessing, planning, implementing and reviewing the health care needs of patients and families.? Other duties will include monitoring and audit, treatment room and community nursing activities. The post holder will be the lead practitioner in providing emergency care on the island.?
Rise to the challenge and enjoy the opportunity - Orkney is a wonderful place to live and work and offers low pollution, low crime, excellent schools, good leisure facilities, unique wildlife and amazing scenery, whilst still only a short flight away from the UK mainland.
