NHS Borders are calling all final year Nursing students and Registered Nurses, as they are recruiting. An open day will be held on Monday 3 April, 8am-2pm at the Education Centre, Borders General Hospital Campus, Melrose.

The open day will be an opportunity to apply for a position at NHS Borders, get to know some of the team, and have a look around the hospital.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to interview on the day for current permanent nursing posts available throughout Acute Services (within the Borders General Hospital), Primary and Community Services, and Mental Health teams. We have posts available with a variety of shift patterns and hours available to support work/life balance.

Sarah Horan, Director of Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professionals at NHS Borders said : “A career with NHS Borders is a career with a great team, room to grow, and a caring community. This could be a brilliant opportunity to kickstart your nursing career in a warm and welcoming workplace. We are looking to recruit a number of nurses, so please help us spread the news about the recruitment day – mention it to your friends and family and share our social media posts.”
