Emergency Nurses , Iraq

Location:   Iraq

Description



We are seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified and experienced Emergency Nurses for short to medium term deployments to work within a field hospital in Iraq.

As part of the conflict in Northern Iraq, the Iraq Army has largely secured the eastern side of Mosul. Much of the healthcare infrastructure had been destroyed so temporary medical facilities have been established.

With the commencement of the offensive in Mosul, there is likely to be a significant increase in trauma casualties. Mosul is a city of about 1.2 million people and both military and civilian casualties have been high. Nearly half the casualties are civilians and this includes a high proportion of children.


As an Emergency Nurse you will work within a multidisciplinary team to provide inpatient acute care, general and obstetric surgery for trauma and other major conditions. You will draw on your previous experience working in isolated or conflict zones and your strong communication skills to deliver high quality clinical services.


EXPERIENCE, QUALIFICATIONS AND DOCUMENTATION REQUIRED:

Evidence of a basic degree/diploma in Nursing.
Evidence of completion of specialist training as an Emergency Nurse.
Evidence of certification in country of residence to practice as an Emergency Nurse.
Evidence, by way of CV, of sufficient and applicable career clinical experience as an Emergency Nurse commensurate with the role.
Evidence, by way of number of emergency presentations/case load or other means, of sufficient recent clinical experience as an Emergency Nurse in the last 12 months.
Previous experience working in a conflict zone, or comparable setting, and possess the physical and psychological resilience to perform in such an environment for periods up to six weeks.
Proven ability to work collaboratively in a multi-disciplinary, international team, and be able to build long-term capacity and sustainability within local staff and structures.
