Aboutthe role

Our Early Supported Discharge team works to prevent avoidable admissions and to support timely transfer home for ongoing health needs assessment and recovery planning.

The team is expanding and we are looking for another Registered Nurse, keen to work with people in the community following presentations to our ED and Inpatient services.

Many of our patients are older adults so you will need a special interest in caring for this population group, completing comprehensive assessments and referring to colleagues / other services depending upon the needs of your patient.

We will soon be seeing people discharged home for rehabilitation following an injury, so you will work closely with Allied Health colleagues, bringing a restorative / rehabilitative approach to your management and rehab plans.

Our staff are our most valuable asset so we are committed to using their time well. Our future direction will see us delegating more work to highly trained Rehabilitation Assistants and, where appropriate, cross-skilling with other professions to reduce unnecessary referrals and duplication of work.

You will continue to find professional support from your nursing colleagues within the team and from the Associate Director of Nursing.

We are committed to improving better health outcomes for Māori and Pacific whānau so you will bring an holistic approach to understanding people’s needs and your personal and professional commitment to health equity is a must.

You’ll also bring sound clinical skills, excellent time and case load management, great communication, and inter personal skills.

Our current RNs work regular days across the fortnight so you can too. We are looking for someone who will complement our nursing team by working alternate Saturdays, each Friday and a Monday or Tuesday.

We are committed to developing a culturally diverse team and strongly encourage applicants of all backgrounds with the right skills to consider applying.

Benefits

We offer a supportive workplace culture with a commitment toyour on-going professional development. This includes; a comprehensiveorientation programme, training and study opportunities, and peer support.

Staff benefits include our newlydeveloped staff 'Wellness Program', discounts from many companies throughoutthe region, and use of our onsite gym.
