Are you a qualified RN with recent, relevant acute care experience, excellent communication skills and evidence of continuing development? Then consider a move to the Trust’s Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU).

A specialist centre for the treatment of patients with cardiac disease including adult congenital heart patients, the 16 bedded CICU is a centre of excellence for patients requiring either intensive care or high dependency care.

A rewarding role situated within a busy unit, you’ll be caring for level 3 and level 2 patients - a mix of cardiac surgery and cardiology cases covering a wide spectrum of patient care. A great opportunity to extend your skills and knowledge, you’ll find a strong culture of staff development and a truly supportive environment. Indeed, you’ll be encouraged to complete your "Certificate of Professional Studies in Critical Care" and have a dedicated Education Development Practitioner to support you.

To succeed, you’ll need excellent communication skills, both verbal and written, plus the ability to work effectively within a large multi-disciplinary team. Adept at prioritising a busy workload, you'll also have what it takes to respond quickly to unexpected changes or situations and an enthusiasm for supporting colleagues at all times. Hard working and flexible in your approach, above all, you have the adaptability and desire to continually learn and develop in an ever-changing environment.
