Enrolled Nurse - A,T&R

A,T&R - Assessment, Treatment & Rehabilitation - Timaru Hospital

Fixed Term, Secondment Cover, Until 17 Feb 2022

Part Time, Rostered Shifts, 64 hours per fortnight, 0.8 FTE


Every moment matters is not only our vision, it is our commitment to enhance the health and independence of the people of South Canterbury. We do things differently at the SCDHB, we believe extraordinary leadership can emerge from anywhere in our workforce, and the best ideas tend to come from staff closest to our patients and our patients themselves.

Our A,T&R service is a close knit nursing, allied health and medical team focused on improving and optimising the health and independence of older people within South Canterbury.

With us you will enjoy working in a supportive, multidisciplinary team actively involved in and challenged by the wide variety of clinical presentations our acute Age Care service faces, while benefiting from the learning opportunities that rehabilitation nursing offers.

You must have the ability to initiate and accept clinical responsibility and work autonomously when appropriate or necessary.  Amongst your strengths will be the ability to function well in a multi-disciplinary team while having the confidence to be a strong advocate for either stable or acutely unwell patients under your care.

You will be registered with the New Zealand Nursing Council and have solid acute nursing experience, preferably in the specialised area of age care medicine.

We are NZ’s best DHB to work in, if you’re ready to be part of something exceptional, to reconnect with why you entered the healthcare profession in the first place, and to be inspired to reach for what is possible not probable.
