Are you looking for the opportunity to get into community work? Have you got a passion for wound care? Are you looking for a new challenge of caring for clients in their own homes?

Access Community Health is looking for a registered nurse to join our District Nursing team to provide outstanding care to our clients in the community.

What does a District Nurse do?

District Nursing is a diverse role working with clients in their own home. This role would suit someone with medical and surgical experience.

As a district nurse you would be expected to undertake woundcare, catheter care, medication administration and general health assessments.

Most of the role is woundcare so having an interest and experience in this is an advantage. You need to have great communication skills, prioritisation skills, work collaboratively within a team and have great computer skills.

You will enjoy working in a team, being exposed to clinical experiences not available to those in a large tertiary hospital while enjoying the benefits of professional development and career opportunities in a large organisation.

What are we looking for?

  • A registered nurse with a current practicing certificate
  • 2 years experience in medical / surgical
  • Excellent verbal communication skills, coupled with a caring nature and the ability to connect and interact within a multi-cultural environment.
  • A team player, someone who can build professional relationships in the community
  • good PC literacy and comfortable with technology
  • Holder of a current NZ Driver's License
  • The ability to work independantly, demonstrated leadership skills, critical thinking skills and the ability to multi-task in a fast paced environment.
  • Applications close Wednesday the 30th September
