Advanced nurse practitioners (ANP)

Whether it’s a bustling A&E department or a critical care environment for children or adults, a GP surgery, or an urgent care centre, our ANPs can adapt to any scenario, ensuring top-quality care for your patients. 

Scottish Nursing Guild exclusively recruits ANPs across the UK, who possess a master’s degree in clinical practice with a minimum of five years of post-registration experience, including two years at a senior level. Demanding this level of expertise means our ANPs are equipped to seamlessly integrate into any healthcare setting, offering independent assessments, diagnoses, treatments, and referrals for patients with undifferentiated and undiagnosed illnesses and minor injuries.  

Chemotherapy nurses

When it comes to exceptional cancer care, our chemotherapy nurses stand out with their unparalleled expertise. Versatile in their experience, they can work in various healthcare settings, including NHS and HSE haematology, oncology units, and private hospitals. Some chemotherapy nurses within our network also have valuable experience in delivering chemotherapy treatment in community settings, ensuring a well-rounded approach to cancer care. 

Carefully selected to have a minimum of 18 months of recent experience within Chemotherapy Day Units over the past two years, they must provide evidence of completing a university-accredited course, comprehensive in-house training, or possess a UKONS SACT Competency Passport. 

Emergency nurse practitioners (ENP)

As the first point of contact, our ENPs are well-equipped to provide treatment, referrals and formulate discharge plans. Whether an A&E department, urgent care centre, minor injuries unit, primary care centre, or GP practice, our ENPs deliver exceptional care, ensuring patients receive timely and appropriate treatment, throughout the UK. 

Our ENPs have at least two years of recent experience working in an urgent care setting, including minor injuries, urgent care, or walk-in centres. Our ENPs must also evidence a university-accredited course at Level 3 (diploma) or higher in clinical reasoning and clinical examination. This ensures they can independently conduct comprehensive consultations for emergency and urgent cases, including undifferentiated and undiagnosed conditions.  

Endoscopy nurses 

Our skilled endoscopy nurses have experience in various healthcare settings, including the NHS and HSE, as well as private sector clinics and hospitals. This diverse background ensures they are practiced in managing different scenarios, offering a comprehensive and proficient approach to endoscopy care. They have a wealth of expertise in assisting with endoscopic procedures, conscious sedation, and infection control. Our endoscopy nurses have at least 12 months of experience within Endoscopy Units.

Mental health and psychiatric nurses and HCAs
