District Enrolled Nurse

District Nursing Service - SCDHB

Permanent, Part time, 72 Hour per Fortnight (0.9 FTE)


Life is a collection of small moments: meaningful moments, challenging moments, moments to remember. At SCDHB, we want to support our people to enjoy more of the moments that matter. Are you ready to join us?

Are you an experienced Enrolled Nurse? How about joining the South Canterbury District Health Board District Nursing service? 

You can’t get any more front line than caring for people in their own home environment where the clinical care that you provide as a health professional is going to make a real difference to an individual’s health status.

The role involves working across South Canterbury, working rostered shifts, as some to meet needs of the service and clients and may include occasional weekends.

You would be working closely with visiting Registered Nurses, Clinical Nurse Specialists, Palliative Care Nurses and Primary Care providers within the area and will be an integral part of the South Canterbury DHB District Nursing team as a whole. 

Training for area specific competencies plus support will be provided to maintain professional competencies in accordance with Nursing Council requirements.

A current Practicing Certificate and full driver’s license are essential.


As one of the country’s smaller DHBs our people always have room to move and grow - you’ll get a wider exposure to specialties and enjoy the benefits of a flat structure: processes that run smoothly and a fun, friendly culture. With us, you’re more than just a number; you’re part of a team where everyone knows your name. You’ll be supported to thrive through our many professional development opportunities and have the chance to share your expertise as part of our graduate mentoring programme.

On top of all that, you’ll get to enjoy the fantastic Timaru lifestyle: between the beach and the mountains, that long-coveted work-life balance is truly achievable here.
