About Registered Nurses at Care UK
Registered Nurses at Care UK are role models for great clinical and care governance practice and act as a champion for residents’ safety and dignity. They’re flexible about working hours and deal with difficult situations with tact and diplomacy and previously, they may have come from a Hospital, General Practice or Primary Care background. They enjoy being part of a team and raising standards through innovation and new ideas. And they consider it a privilege to be trusted to look after others. Do you share their values? Then we could have just the role for you.
What you’ll be doing
Being a Registered Nurse doesn’t just mean providing leadership for care staff and supporting residents with a range of complex needs and dependency levels. It means getting to use your wide variety of nursing skills in a unique environment where no two days are the same. It means ensuring the ongoing safety of residents, staff and visitors alike through systematic assessment, monitoring and reviewing processes. And it means spending quality time with residents and being integral to creating long-term care plans for them. Put simply, it means making a difference. A real difference.
What you’ll need

You’re also well-organised, understand care planning processes and have a proven ability to write comprehensive care plans.
