Ad description

Adult nurses are the main point of contact for old and young adult patients and their families, and play a vital role in teams of professional and medical staff. They work with (among others) doctors, social workers and therapists, and attend to a patient's comfort and emotional well-being as well as their medical needs. Typical duties of the job include:

assessing and planning nursing care requirements
writing care plans and records
providing pre and post operation care
monitoring a patient's condition
carrying out routine investigations and care procedures, such as administering medication, injections and intravenous infusions, and taking patient samples, pulses, temperatures and blood pressures
dealing with emergencies
supervising junior staff
organising workloads
tutoring student nurses
providing advice and promoting good health
providing information, emotional support and reassurance to patients and relatives

Shiftwork to provide 24 hour care is a common requirement.
Qualifications and training required

Nurses are required to study a three or four-year degree in nursing, with their time divided between formal teaching and practical experience. Graduates in a relevant subject such as life, health, biological or social sciences can qualify via a shortened two-year postgraduate diploma course.

Previous care work is not essential, but demonstrates commitment and is a useful opportunity to experience the role and talk to practiced nurses.
Key skills for adult nurses

Good interpersonal skills are vital for nurses, who have to communicate with numerous other medical and care professionals as well as being a key source of information and emotional support for patients. Other valuable attributes are:

verbal/written communication skills

willingness to be flexible
teamwork skills
an ability to deal with 'emotionally charged' situations
organisational skills
managerial and leadership skills
attention to detail
good health and fitness
