We are always looking to increase our Bank with Staff nurses with experience of working in an acute hospital, but we also provide training for those who haven’t worked recently in an acute setting.

This is a great route to working with us on a permanent contract and developing your career in acute nursing.

Experienced Staff Nurses

If you are a Staff Nurse with recent experience in acute care we would be interested in hearing from you. As you are already qualified and experienced, once you have successfully completed our interview process you will be able to start work on the bank as soon as your pre-employment checks are completed.

New to the acute hospital environment?

If you are a qualified Staff Nurse but don’t have recent experience in an acute hospital setting, we like to hear from you.

Once you have successfully completed our interview process, and your pre-employment checks are completed, you will be ready to begin your career at Yeovil Hospital by attending our comprehensive 3 week (full time) paid training programme. This programme includes a combination of classroom and on the ward teaching, and after this you will be equipped to start nursing patients on our wards. Interviews start from Wednesday 11th May, and then every two weeks on a Wednesday, there after.

Return to the Acute Environment (RACE) training programme:

The RACE training programme will take place on the following dates:

  • 08th May
  • 10th July
  • 02nd October
  • 06th November
Please note you must complete the full three weeks and would be expected to work full time to successfully complete the course – you will of course be paid for this training too!
