An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Staff Nurse to join our team within the Acute Medicine Unit at Raigmore Hospital. We are looking for a motivated, caring and compassionate nurse who is able to work well under pressure that is already experienced or is looking to gain experience within an acute environment. The Acute Medicine Unit covers an Acute Assessment Unit, Ambulatory Emergency Care and Medical High Dependency Unit.

The Acute Assessment Unit (Ward GA) admits acutely unwell patients direct from the community & Emergency Department. This is a fast paced and interesting environment to work within.

Medical High Dependency delivers Level 2 care. It is an ideal environment to learn critical care skills, such as NIV, inotrope support, monitoring arterial & central lines etc. Successful candidates will be supported to complete CC3N Steps Framework for Adult Critical Care Nurses Competencies.

Posts are available within each area, however rotation throughout the unit can be facilitated if desired.

Successful candidates should be able to work well as part of a large and diverse team, have excellent care values and a good sense of humour. They should also have enthusiasm to work, learn and develop themselves and colleagues. This is an ideal area to gain acute medical and critical care experience and be supported to develop your clinical skills. We help to support staff on career pathways to develop skills which can lead onto a variety of roles including Senior Staff Nurses, Senior Charge Nurses & Advanced Nurse Practitioner.

NHS Scotland is reducing their full time working week from 37.5 to 37 hours per week from 1 April 2024 but with no change in pay.  This reduction will also be applied pro rata for part time staff.  This advert and any subsequent offer/contract of employment therefore reflects the new working hours.  However, as not all service areas will be able to adopt the 37 hour working week immediately from 1 April 2024, you may be required to work up to an additional 30 minutes per week for a temporary period for which you would be paid until the service you are working in changes rosters or working patterns to accommodate the new reduced working week.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Recruiting Board.
