Student and Newly Qualified Nurse - Adult

Band 5

If you are a passionate student nurse within 18 months of qualifying, we welcome your application to join our rapidly-advancing Trust.  

University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust (UHS) is a major trauma centre situated on the south coast of England, where award-winning careUK firsts, and ground-breaking clinical trials are all in a day’s work. Our teams care for patients providing a broad range of services, from the start of life to the end. This means that you have huge variety in the people you work with, the patients you see and the career pathways on offer to you.

At UHS, we’re guided by our values of putting patients first, always improving and working together. So if you’re dedicated to patient care, inspired to make progressive improvements, and a great collaborator; we’d love you to join us.


To give you the strongest start in your career, we offer a comprehensive two-week induction and a well-supported preceptorship programme. There are plenty of opportunities to grow your career and take the lead as you progress, and we’re committed to supporting all our staff in achieving their personal and professional ambitions.

We think working here is pretty great, but you don’t have to take our word for it. Here’s what one of our newly qualified nurses said about working at UHS:

“I feel incredibly proud to be part of such a forward-thinking, innovative trust, and I hope to see many more people joining to share the same positive experience that I’ve had!”

-              Ellie Fowler, newly qualified nurse, child health

The New Forest National Park and the beaches of the Jurassic coast are also right on our doorstep. The city offers living costs 20% lower than those in London, 13 schools rated outstanding by Ofsted and 13 nearby green spaces to enjoy.
