​​Scrub Nurse

MedGen is looking for experienced Scrub Nurses in Dorset on a part-time basis. We’re looking for an experienced professional who can work quickly and efficiently in a fast-paced environment and provide our patients with the care and support they need prior to surgery.

The Role

A Scrub Nurse is responsible for preoperative patient care and should be calm and responsive, have the ability to perform under pressure, and be an effective communicator. Ultimately, a high-quality Scrub Nurse should be up to date with the latest developments in healthcare best practices.

Scrub Nurse Responsibilities and duties

I’m not going to tell you what a Scrub Nurse does, because the truth is – you probably already are one if you’re looking at this! However, some of the common duties you can expect to be carried out are:

  • Giving preoperative instructions

  • Preparing patients for surgery

  • Assisting the Anaesthetist and Surgeons when needed

  • Sterilising and marking incision sites

  • Intervening when there are complications

  • Administering medication

  • Preparing the operating room

Scrub Nurse Requirements

Being highly professional is of course, incredibly important, but equally as desirable is your ability to communicate, empathize and successfully provide the highest levels of care. We require our nurses to possess:

  • An NMC pin

  • A recent DBS check

  • Clinical experience

  • The right to work in the UK

  • Familiarity with all surgical instruments and equipment

  • Ability to work in a stressful and emotional environment

Why MedGen?

We believe in a people-first approach to nursing. Some of the benefits we offer are:

  • Competitive pay rates

  • High volume of national work

  • Flexible hours to suit you

  • Lucrative 'Recommend a Friend Bonus

  • Mileage/Expense payments

  • 24/7 support from the MedGen Clinical team
