As a prison nurse you will be working in a multi-disciplinary team performing assessments, recovery plans and offering treatment options to prisoners suffering with substance dependency issues. The majority of your work will be performed working directly with individuals on a 1-1 basis, however, you will also provide support within a group setting liaising with recovery practitioners and prescribers.
The ideal candidate will have a firm but understanding and compassionate approach to those undergoing treatment within the prison. You will have an awareness of security requirements and hold past experience working within the prison system, preferably within a nursing role.
Candidates must be comfortable working independently and so an enthusiastic and motivated attitude is essential, a resilient 'can-do' approach is important due to the nature of the clientele.
*Have a valid and current NMC pin
*Have past experience working within the substance misuse sector or extensive experience working with people who suffer from substance addiction.
*Have an in-date fully enhanced DBS
