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.

We are currently looking to fill a Registered Nurse vacancy within our Day Patients Service.  Ideally, we are seeking a Registered Nurse with recent experience in medical or surgical nursing. (Shifts are rostered Monday to Friday between 0700-2030.)

Day Patient Services provides care for patients from pre-admission through to their surgery plus admission or same day discharge, managing the care of patients undergoing medical procedures, infusions and chemotherapy treatment.

If you like nursing but don’t like shift work or working on weekends, you can have your cake and eat it too.

To be eligible for this role you will also need to be registered with the New Zealand Nursing Council and have a current Annual Practising Certificate.
