Nursing Personnel are recruiting nursing agency ENP (Emergency Nurse Practitioners) nurses for ENP jobs across the UK. We are an NHS approved nursing agency on all nursing NHS Framework Agreements. This means Nursing Personnel can offer you continuity of work when and where you need it.
As an Emergency Nurse Practitioner, you would act as a specialist nurse working independently in your area of practice. Specifically, an ENP is a senior practitioner working in the Emergency Department who has been specially trained to treat minor injuries without necessarily having to refer to a doctor.
An ENP will be able to assess, diagnose, treat and discharge patients. They are able to carry out a wide variety of tasks, from reading and assessing x-rays to giving injections and administering some medications, including antibiotics. An ENP could be called on to record and interpret ECG examinations, carry out wound, burn or scald treatments, or apply Plaster of Paris to fractures. Typically, ENPs treat all types of patients aged 12 and over, and so must be adaptable and able to make rapid decisions under pressure. The role of Emergency Nurse Practitioner is in many ways all-encompassing, and has been introduced with the continuous improvement of NHS emergency services in mind. Besides working in the ED or A&E, ENPs could also be placed in trauma centres, Urgent Care Centres, or on ambulances.
To work as an ENP you must already be a registered nurse. Registered nurses looking to become an emergency practitioner need to complete a master’s degree (MSN) or doctoral degree (DNP). These programs often require registered nurses to have gathered some years of experience before progressing in order to develop clinical and problem-solving experience, although this is not always essential. However, the majority of ENP training usually takes place on the job.
The ENP role is best suited to a nurse who feels they have natural leadership skills, and are able to work well in a challenging environment.
