Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland (SBHI) is currently recruiting enthusiastic and caring individuals, who are qualified nurses, to work on SHINE 2019, our summer independence training programme.
SHINE (Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland Nurturing Empowerment) is for teenagers and adults with Spina Bifida and / or Hydrocephalus from all over the country, giving them the opportunity to develop their independence, confidence, and social skills in a safe, encouraging and fun environment.
The role of nurses
Nursing staff are responsible for looking after all nursing needs of participants. SHINE 2019 is taking place in various locations in July / August / September over five separate weeks: nurses staff must commit to working on at least one of the five-week programmes.
We are a national organisation supporting more than 2,000 people who know Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus to be a reality in their lives. We work to increase awareness about these conditions, as well as the essential funds which ensure that our unique service is sustained. Around 40 babies are born with Spina Bifida each year in Ireland - which is one of the highest incidence rates in the world – and 1 in 1,000 live births are affected by Hydrocephalus.
“A week on SHINE summer camp is like no other. Prepare to be challenged, to laugh like never before, and above all else to make some genuine lifelong friends! SBHI is a friendly and helpful organisation - they will not only ensure that you have a memorable week, but also some wonderful memories too.”
“I suppose the most rewarding part of working there is seeing the progress of the participants and watching them achieving their goals and dreams, and the feeling that you have made a difference in someone's life. That camp is simply a brilliant thing to do.”

Closing date for receipt of applications is 5pm on Friday 8th May 2019.
