A practice nurse will be in band 5 or 6, depending on experience.
What is the difference between a practice nurse and a registered nurse?
A registered nurse is a nurse who has completed their training. Within this title there are several specialisms, such as adult, community, mental health and more. A practice nurse will work in a GP practice within primary care, offering nursing care, planning, treatment and health education. They’ll work alongside GPs, health visitors, pharmacists, dieticians and other nurses to provide treatment and care. At larger GP surgeries they may be part of a nursing team and may get to focus on certain areas, while at smaller surgeries they may work alone and be required to offer a larger range of services.
