Respiratory Nurse Specialists

In 2016 the Society's Specialist Nurse Group spearheaded a research project about the respiratory specialist nurse workforce.  This will be published shortly in BMJ Open Respiratory Research.  

The Group will continue to publish useful information and needs your help to augment this section of the website

Below you will find generic job descriptions for Respiratory Nurse Specialists for band 6 and band 7.  We are grateful to Sam Prigmore, who works at St George's Hospital  for providing these documents.   We will be adding sub-specialty information to this page soon. 

Sam is also finishing her research project (VANGUARD), which is a study to identify and evaluate the impact of respiratory nurse specialists on patient health outcomes.  We will post more information about this when available.

If you have any resources or can recommend any links that you think a Respiratory Nurse Specialist and/or employers might find useful and should be included on this page, please don't hesitate to contact us.
