The starting salary will be from £35,845 on Grade F, depending on qualifications and experience.

Summary of the role

In September 2019 the University of Exeter launched its unique four-year MSci in Nursing within the Exeter Academy of Nursing. In our Academy we make a difference by educating the world’s finest nurses using unsurpassed educational and clinical practices. Our MSci programme has ‘best in class’ student to staff ratios with student cohorts of 30-60 students per year allowing lecturers, students, clinicians and our patient and public involvement team to work very closely together. Students study nursing in our state of the art classrooms, brand new simulation facilities and exemplary clinical environments.

Our educational and clinical team deliver an innovative, integrated curriculum based on our celebrated ‘Six Pillars’, an important one of which is ‘no health without mental health’. Together with five other pillars on the fundamentals of nursing care, patient and public involvement, evidence for practice, global health, and leadership and management, our graduates will be equipped with the enhanced integrated nursing skills necessary for their work as future nurse leaders.  All of them will exit their course qualified as a scientist practitioner in nursing, with either an Adult or dual Adult/Mental Health Nursing masters degree.

If you share this vision of excellence, we need you to join our team. We are recruiting one 100% FTE lecturer. For the adult nursing post we are particularly interested in candidates with experience of theory and practice education in anatomy and physiology, pharmacology and fundamental nursing care skills such as mobility, nutrition, hydration, cleanliness, elimination and communication, and of experience of educating students to nurse people outside of the acute hospital environment.
