School Health Nursing in Oxfordshire is a dynamic service offering a high quality of care to children, young people and their families.
We deliver the healthy child programme in school providing face to face support, contributing and delivering sessions as part of the Personal, Social and Health Education curriculum and coordinating immunisation sessions.
Our secondary school team is unusual in that school health nurses are based in state schools, meaning that we are highly accessible to young people.
For this post we require someone who holds the SCPHN qualification.
If you choose to come and join us, you would be supporting children and young people in school, ensuring that the relevant public health messages are shared in creative ways.
You will also be offering support to vulnerable children and young people who may be looked after or have a child protection plan in place and ensuring children with specific medical conditions are able to access learning opportunities.
This makes the school health nurse role varied and stimulating, as no two days are ever the same.
We recognise that lone working can be a challenge for staff so we have a robust support system in place - a comprehensive induction plan, weekly clinical meetings with other practitioners based in schools, as well as a preceptorship programme.
Oxford Health also offer regular opportunities for personal development.
We currently have a 37.5 hour a week term-time only Band 6 post available in the Banbury area.
Own car or access to alternative travel for business use is essential.
