Bucks' Chief Nurse hosting virtual Q&A

The Chief Nurse for Buckinghamshire is helping to promote a career in nursing today.

Karen Bonner, who is just one of 10 nurse directors from a BAME background in the country, will be hosting an online chat with nurses looking for their next career move with Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust.

The talk and Q&A with Karen, who is not only an avid champion for diversity but also passionate about mentoring junior nurses, is part of a wider virtual career open day organised by the Trust.

The open day is an opportunity for nurses at various points in their career, from across the country, to speak to inspirational leaders including representatives from ITU, Adult Community Care and General Medicine.

Participants will have an opportunity to find out more about working at the combined acute and community care Trust, about living in the towns and countryside villages of Buckinghamshire and even interview for current vacancies, all from the comfort and safety of their own home computer screens.

Chief Nurse Karen Bonner says:

"I joined the Trust fairly recently but have already been bowled over by everyone's friendliness, kindness and sense of team spirit. I've done nearly every role on the career ladder and now I mentor and support a lot of nurses from all backgrounds.

"So I hope people attend the open day because it could be the gateway to their amazing career in a caring organisation.

"By coming to work here you'd be joining what really feels like a family of highly-trained and qualified doctors, nurses, midwives, health visitors, therapists, healthcare scientists and support staff. And it's also an exciting place to work as an integrated trust your career could span hospital and community health.

"In addition, our stroke service is one of the best in the region, we are a regional centre for burns and plastics and our National Spinal Injuries Centre is famous across the globe."

Interested nurses can book their place at the virtual open day on Eventbrite, the link is also pinned to the top of the Trust's Facebook and Twitter pages or can be found by searching for 'Bucks NHS Trust Career Open Day'.
