hi, I am a band 5 learning disability nurse working in an inpatient unit. I have just applied for a band 6 post on the unit I currently work on. I have to do a presentation on, 'what are the 3 main differences between a senior band 5 nurse and a band 6 and how would you measure this?'
Any advice any guidance would be very much appreciated, thankyou.
Hi there, my partner is a nurse on an assessment ward with 4 years experience at band 5. She’s applied for a role which will be band 6 until she passes her prescribing course after which it becomes band 7, so assume the interview is at that level. She has been asked to produce a presentation around how the role of community matron develops primary care networks and enhanced care home support, so I’m looking for some tips around how much detail to go into in the presentation, If there are any common pitfalls and if there is any other general advice? I saw a lot of references to your blog but the links don’t seem to work anymore?
much appreciated if you can help at all.
Hi Mark, how long is the presentation for? I guess that will determine the level of detail.
Take a look at the JD and try to cover off some of the key elements, I would imagine it will be around making sure there is adequate governance and assurance regarding care and improvements.
Support and education for the team, networking with health partners and local authorities to wrap care around the patient

I've read your blog and would really value your advice. I am currently working on a large cardiothoracic critical care unit as a band 6 nurse and I have an interview next week for a band 7 post on the same unit (we have 7 or 8 band 7s currently). I have to give an interview and a presentation on " What Role does Leadership play in creating and maintaining a positive organisational culture?"
I have outlined what makes a positive organisational culture, focussed on transformational leadership and tried to relate it back to our unit. Am I on the right track?
Hi sorry I've not replied sooner, I've been on holiday. Sounds like you are on the right track, you can talk about attitude, role modelling, promoting positivity in a difficult environment.
Whilst transformational leadership may be your style it's worth recognising that sometimes you may be required to adapt that into a more direct and instructive style depending on the situation. For example if you think of emergencies you would be giving clear instructions and direction to your team because that's what's needed.
I love Shakletons (explorer) style of leadership, crisis managment at it's best, and that is kind of what we do in the NHS every day. If you have time have a look at some of the work around his leadership
