  • Our people

Welcome and thank-you for your interest in a nursing role at Leeds Teaching Hospitals. Nurses are vital in helping the Trust deliver the highest quality healthcare possible to our many patients and their carers.

The following video will help you determine if a nursing role is right for you.


To work as a band 5 staff nurse you must have a diploma or degree in nursing and be registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC). This role focuses on the provision of direct care to people in a ward environment or specialist department. You will be providing care for people of all ages and backgrounds.

You will also work with different healthcare teams, therefore, you will need to know how all of these different teams work together and to be able to share your knowledge and skills with the multidisciplinary team, patients, and their families and make sure their needs are recognised by the rest of the care team. As a nurse you're a listener, a manager, and a knowledgeable skilled professional.

Are you sure that you want to leave this questionaire before completing it?
