The Department of Nursing, Health and Professional Practice is a diverse department consisting of a number of teams of healthcare professionals. Programmes are offered to students in the four fields of nursing, continuing professional development, midwifery, paramedic practice and primary care as well as counselling and advanced practice. The department has a growing research profile and staff with a wide range of practice experience, which informs the teaching of both profession specific and inter-professional programme content.  Inter-professional education and experiential learning are cornerstones of the educational approach used within the Department, with a particular focus on employability for graduates.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly motivated team, in the delivery of high quality academic provision. In particular, you will have a key role supporting the organisation, design and delivery of our Non-Medical Prescribing (NMP) programmes. This is an exciting time in the field of non-medical prescribing and our dynamic and contemporary programmes of study are designed to ensure that the growing number of health care practitioners granted legal prescribing status are fully prepared for this key role of being safe and effective prescribers in practice.

You will develop positive working relationships with NHS and other partners, to ensure that the Department is proactive in meeting contemporary agendas and workforce development needs, especially in relation to NMP.

Educated to master’s level or above, you will have excellent communication skills and will demonstrate enthusiasm for practice based learning, teaching and assessment alongside a passion for student success. A willingness to use a range of innovative technologies and strategies in the support and provision of high quality learning opportunities is essential. You must hold current professional registration with the appropriate professional regulatory body and have a recorded independent prescribing qualification.

We are particularly keen to hear from pharmacists or pharmacologists who hold the appropriate prescribing qualification.

We are seeking innovative, creative, high quality researchers, and scholars to foster a culture of exploration, discovery and intellectual challenge that generates international recognition, respect and engagement.
