Here at Hospice Whanganui, we believe in supporting our patients to live the best life possible with the time they have left.
Through the provision of excellent palliative care, we support our patients and their whānau in achieving their goals and wishes as they journey through a life-limiting illness.
We also believe in the value of partnerships and working together with other providers of services in our community to deliver the best possible care to patients and their whānau.
Hospice Whanganui provides specialist palliative care to patients and their whānau, but there is a wide range of other providers in our community who care for palliative patients and with whom we need to work in close partnership with.
We believe in a strongly nurse led future for Palliative Care and the development of nurse practitioners is key to this future.
We have an exciting new opportunity available for someone to join our amazing team as Nurse Practitioner or as a Nurse Practitioner Candidate.
We believe that all people, regardless of who they are or where they live in our region should be able to access excellent palliative care and support.
For this reason, most of our work is done in the community, in the homes of our patients and their whānau and in the places that they choose to be.
We also have a small, five-bed in-patient unit where some of our patients may be admitted for short-term stays from time to time if they so choose.
The core values of Hospice Whanganui are :
You are welcome to apply if :
a) You are a NP with palliative Care experience
b) You have palliative care experience and you have developed your career towards being a NP candidate in 2023
c) You are a NP in another field but feel the call of palliative care as a new horizon in your career
An appropriate induction will be offered to assist you in achieving your aspirations, should you be fortunate enough to be accepted for the position.
You will be well supported in your career choice by an enthusiastic team who believe in a nurse led future.
