Staff Nurse

Develop your nursing career with North Devon Hospice.

Full and part time hours available.

Our nursing team are proud to support and care for patients and their families at their most vulnerable time.  We have great opportunities for full and part time registered nurses to join our highly committed multi-disciplinary team of staff and volunteers, who work seamlessly together to make the care provided very special.  Palliative care experience is not essential for these roles - but the passion to work in this area is.  We will support you to develop specialist skills in palliative care, and this role could be a potential stepping stone for anyone wanting to develop their career as a clinical nurse specialist in a community or inpatient setting. 

Our work environment is second to none and our seven bedded unit is based in our beautiful grounds at Deer Park in Barnstaple. We have a range of benefits available for our staff including flexible working, free parking, counselling and support services and other health and wellbeing activities. We also have a beautiful garden and outside seating space that is available for everyone to use.

Like any organisation, it’s the people who make a difference, so why not join us and make a difference to our patients and their families.
