senior staff nurse

(redirected from senior nurse)

senior staff nurse

A nurse in the UK who is in the middle of ward hierarchy, above staff nurses but below charge nurses and ward managers (senior sisters). Senior nurses perform many of the same tasks as staff nurses, but have authority when they are in charge of the ward or department area during a shift. Senior nurses are usually at pay band 5 or 6 under the Agenda for Change, which corresponds to E or F grade under the Whitley system (which was officially retired in 2004 but may still be used in the working parlance).
