Is your passion as a Nurse, making a real difference for people with a cognitive impairment?
If so then the Kite Unit is the place for you to work. The unit focuses on short term assessment, rehabilitation, neuro-behavioral/psychiatric and disability management to support people with a cognitive impairment after experiencing a brain injury.
You will be part of the multidisciplinary team providing high quality, person centered rehabilitation programs. Supporting patients with complex medical, behavioral, physical and neurological needs by using evidence based patient centered principles that are responsive to individual needs. Some experience of working with people who due to their neurological condition which combined with other health and/or psychiatric need, creates significant difficulties or leads to the presentation of challenging behaviour is desirable but not essential as you will undertake a vigorous induction and training programme. This is a truly rewarding and challenging role.
We are really excited to offer this opportunity to join our friendly and supportive team at the Kite Unit; a specialist Inpatient Neuropsychiatric Service operating as part of Solent Neurological Rehabilitation Services, as a Learning Disability Nurse.
Take a virtual tour of Solent's newly built Kite Unit on our additional vacancy documents listed on the right of this advert. We also are happy to offer informal visits to discuss our opportunities too!
