Staff members are expected to work across programmes according to their professional background and educational qualifications. These roles require a nurse who is passionate about clinical practice, has an excellent reputation as a professional and who can contribute to undergraduate and / or postgraduate education and research. These roles may suit an experienced educator or someone new to nursing education who is seeking a change in the direction of their career.
