A sub-tropical island of spectacular and beautiful landscapes in the South Atlantic with a warm and friendly population of 4,500, St Helena is a self-governing overseas territory of the UK.  Following the opening of its international airport in October 2017, St Helena is better placed to develop both economically and socially.

As you review processes and practices you will promote a culture of research and evidence-based practice to enhance person-centred care, acting as a change agent, developing clinically effective practice through the effective utilisation and integration of evidence. It should be a culture of continuous quality improvement through the use of audit, patient/client feedback and reflection on practice. You will also undertake emergency triage, with emergency services through clinical care in the ambulance including advanced resuscitation skills.

You must ensure that appropriate systems are developed and operational and that risk management arrangements are in place, maintaining effective record management. With effective admission and discharge planning and management of duty rotas, annual leave and study leave, you will lead and participate in orientation and induction programmes, ensure supervision and mentorship is embedded and contribute to budget management

You should also have experience in an AAU/AMU (acute medical setting), A&E or ICU with up-to-date ALS or willing to undertake ALS training.

Familiar with changing trends in health and social care, you should be conversant with current professional issues in relation to nursing and be able to influence and manage change, including the promotion of evidence based practice.
