This is an exciting time to join the Hertsmere Community Nursing service in Herts Valley. We have developed new community pathways which will support the delivery of more care in people’s homes, and to enable us to do this we have a range of new learning and development opportunities available through the CLCH Academy.
But don’t just take our word for it; listen to what our staff have to say about their jobs.
Hannah has been a community nurse for five years. In that time she has had the opportunity to complete the Specialist Practitioner in District Nursing qualification,
She says :
Community employers really value their staff and take the time to grow them. This is reflected in the values of our academy at CLCH, and there are many career pathways you can follow in the community, including specialist nursing, complex case management and operational management of a team.
I have worked in Hertsmere since qualifying and have progressed in my career to Deputy Team Leader. It is a welcoming, friendly place to work where the team nurture and support each other.
There is a culture of continuous improvement and the drive to deliver the best possible care to patients among all staff.
Community Nursing is a growing sector, expected to care for increasingly complex patients, which can be challenging. But the rewards of Community Nursing are unique - you are an autonomous practitioner who is invited into the innermost aspects of people's lives to see them through some of their most challenging times.
I see my role as a privilege and it has afforded me opportunities that I would not have had elsewhere. I would encourage anyone to apply to work with us - no day is the same, you will be well supported by strong managers and a positive, friendly, close knit team to grow and progress.
We are looking for nurses with a genuine interest in continuing to develop skills in this field. We have a good track record of supporting newly qualified nurses, return to practice nurses, and nurses transitioning into the community from other settings including acute care.
You must be able to work flexibly according to service needs and have excellent organisational, time management and communication skills.
We are based at Potters Bar Community Hospital, just off the M25 at Junction 24.
Just as we care about our patients’ wellbeing, we care about yours!
