Our nursing team is the beating heart of the organisation. As a Trust we’re invested in your wellbeing and professional development and we understand that patient experience is directly linked to staff experience.

Whether you’re working as part of our community district nursing teams helping to keep patients in their homes, in one of our two inpatient units, or with schools and early years as part of our health visiting team, the role you play is crucial to maintaining healthy communities. 

As part of our nursing team you’ll thrive in a people orientated
environment working with patients, carers and staff. 

You’ll meet new challenges with passion and enthusiasm and be a valued member of our nursing family. 

Feeling like you’ve made a difference and seeing the young people get better,
is so rewarding.

Every young person we see is unique, which makes it really interesting,
every day is different.

Student Placements

NELFT offers a wide range of placements to a variety of students. Practice experience facilitators (PEFS) support the students, the practice assessors, and practice supervisors during placements. They maintain links with the Higher Education Institutes to ensure high-quality practice placements are available, which offer all students the opportunity to meet their identified learning outcomes in a conducive learning environment.

Working closely with the higher education institutes we provide placements for three different routes to registration with the Nursing Midwifery Council as a qualified nurse or midwife;

  • Postgraduate Diploma – This route is open to those who have previously undertaken a related degree.
  • Bachelor of Science – Working with our partner universities, we provide placements for five branches of Nursing and Midwifery.
  • Masters of Science – This is a Masters level course which also leads to registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
