A willingness to undertake a Post Graduate Teaching qualification- PGCE or equivalent if not already completed. There are a number of other essential and desirable criteria for the role that may apply.
I have considerable experience as an adult nurse but my most significant experience in practice is as a community nursing sister. It is in the community setting that I developed my knowledge and skills in patient assessment, multi-disciplinary team working and health promotion and prevention. I have been able to put this knowledge and experience to good use in my teaching role. While working in the community I completed an MSc in Nursing with a focus on the health and well-being of Older People and went on then to complete my PGCE.
