An exciting opportunity has arisen for a motivated, innovative and highly skilled registered nurse to train as an Advanced Neonatal Nurse Practitioner in one of the best performing units in the country (MBRRACE 2018).

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is a well established neonatal service with specialist medical and neurological treatment providing intensive care, high dependency care, special care and transitional care for hundreds of babies each year. Based at Southmead Hospital, Bristol, we are one of the Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Units for the South Western Delivery Network. We have 34 cots, comprising of 16 Intensive care  or high dependency cots, 18 special care cots and 10 transitional care cots.   A recent trainee survey reported exceptional educational feedback for the unit. 

North Bristol Trust is a centre of excellence for health care in the South West in a number of fields as well as one of the largest hospital trusts in the UK with an annual turnover of £532 million.

Our aim is to provide our patients and families with best practice, high quality care and treatment that is comparable to the best in the world. We want to care for our patients in a safe environment  and ensure that everyone has an outstanding experience.

Training: The clinical element of the training will take place in Southmead NICU and the academic input will be provided by Southampton University at masters level. The successful candidate must have proven study at BSc. The yearlong course is a demanding and intense course which requires commitment and will need the candidate to reside in Southampton for elements of the course. Within the team, excellent clinical care is our priority whilst optimising patient outcomes and contributing to a positive family experience. The ANNPs work as part of a multi-disciplinary team supporting the medical rota. They promote and deliver training and education, develop Unit initiatives and play a key part in service development.

The successful candidate will be a motivated and dedicated nurse with clinical, leadership and management skills at a senior level. They need to have a passion for high quality patient care within neonates, well-developed communication & relationship skills and a positive, mature and professional attitude. Training will be paid at B6/7 (to be confirmed on appointment) and the once the ANNP course has been successfully completed, after a period of consolidation the post be will be 8a.
