Find your place
With general intensive care, cardiac intensive care, an ECMO service and home of the South Thames Retrieval Service, there’s real variety and the chance to gain an unequalled breadth of experience here. So wherever you are on your career path right now, explore what Evelina London could offer you. And discover why we have the most engaged workforce of any Trust in the country.
Whether you’re newly qualified or already have paediatric or ITU experience, we’ll give you the space to develop in your career with the support of our dedicated education team and the Evelina Academy. You’ll play an active part in your professional development through study days, e-learning and more, all guided by your mentors. As a Band 6 Nurse, you will also have the opportunity to support senior colleagues on retrievals, which means this is the only place where you can care for general PICU and cardiac patients and also be a member of a critical care retrieval team.
If you’re new to paediatrics or ITU, we’ll support your transition and make sure you soon settle in. With strong career pathways to Band 7 and beyond, we also offer training courses to nurses who want to become Advanced Nurse Practitioners and Retrieval Advanced Nurse Practitioners.
If you’d like to find out more, come along to one of our open days for a chance to meet and chat with our team, take a tour of our advanced facilities and find out about training and development that’s shaped around you.
For senior nursing professionals, we can offer plenty of opportunities to take your career where you want it to be. You could develop as an autonomous practitioner within the PICU itself, expanding your clinical decision-making and complex management skills across the diagnosis, assessment and treatment of patients. Or you could broaden your experience into critical care transport with the South Thames Retrieval Service. This is an integral part of the PICU, so as an Retrieval Nurse Practitioner (RNP), you really will be at the heart of the service. We were the first in the UK to develop this role for nurses which is now well established and modelled throughout the country.
