At Staffordshire University, our vison is to be a great regional university connected to businesses, industry and health care providers and to our local communities working with schools, colleges and partner organisations to continue to raise aspirations, improve progression into higher education and to contribute to the health, social and economic development.

The School of Health and Social Care (HSC) is fundamental to meeting this vision by offering a range of courses from foundation degrees in acute care, perioperative practice, mental health and integrated care to undergraduate courses, in nursing (adult, child and mental health), midwifery, operating department practice, paramedic science, social work and social welfare, together with health and social care. We support students through all stages of their career from undergraduate study, to continuing professional development, postgraduate and doctoral study, as well as through a range of workforce development modules and study days.

The school works closely with practice partners to prepare and develop health care and social work professionals to provide high quality care.
The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to delivery of teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in Nursing and other health related programmes. You will be engaged in research and knowledge-exchange activity including CPD, short course activities and develop your own personal area of scholarship and professional expertise.

You must possess excellent knowledge of the development and contemporary aspects of Adult or Mental Health nursing practice and be registered with the NMC (part 1).   You must hold a first degree and be qualified to Doctoral level in a relevant discipline and have subject expertise with specialist knowledge gained through research activity, professional practice or consultancy.

To help us achieve our vision, we are seeking to appoint two FTE Lecturers in Adult Nursing  and one 0.8 FTE Mental Health Nurse Lecturer to contribute to teaching excellence and innovation, related to the nursing care in adults and mental health fields, along with research in the clinical environment. The successful candidates need to effectively articulate their contribution to improving patient services, through education, research and innovation.

The post holders will need to demonstrate contemporary knowledge and experience in a health care environment. Facilitating student-centered nurse education in higher education is desirable, along with the motivation and ability to innovate and evaluate our adult pre-registration curriculum as it progresses.
