Band 5-6 community mental health nursing fast-track scheme

Grade – Band 5+1 increment

Are you an enthusiastic and passionate Band 5 nurse? Would you like to become a Band 6 nurse in 1 year or even less? Then join our community!

Community Mental Health Nurses play a crucial role in the provision of care for service users with mental health needs and their families, providing targeted treatment and therapeutic interventions and enabling them to access the support they need on their pathway to recovery. Community nurses work autonomously but with close support from their line manager, a clinical supervisor and a wider team of multi-disciplinary professionals.

You maybe a Band 5 community nurse or are interested in making the transition into community nursing, we are offering an exciting opportunity for high potential nurses to develop their skills to become a Band 6 care co-ordinator within a year. You will attend classroom training sessions and will work closely with a caseload of service users under the supervision of a senior nurse as you develop your competence against a structured framework and your confidence in decision making and risk management.

To take up this opportunity you need to be a registered mental health nurse with at least 1 year’s post-qualification experience and with the drive and aptitude to work autonomously, managing a caseload requiring diligence, organisation and sound judgement. Beyond this, we can offer the most talented nurses the opportunity to move onto one of our accredited management development programmes which is the springboard into leadership.
