Nurse led service, with generous training and study allowances

The Department of Corrections employs 250 Nurses who work collaboratively with Doctors, Allied Health staff and custody personnel.

We're united by our goal of making a positive difference in the lives of offenders, their families and the community.

Nursing at Corrections offers many unique opportunities to develop and practise your skills in a wide range of clinical areas.

On any given day Nurses working in our prison health centres provide a full range of primary health care services. Nurses assess and manage people with a variety of health issues, challenging physical and mental health problems, substance abuse related issues, as well as responding to emergencies and providing health education.

To be successful in this role, you will have :

  • Recent experience in primary or secondary health care nursing
  • A broad range of post-graduate clinical experience
  • The ability to assess and respond to an emergency situation
  • The motivation to continue learning and developing professionally
  • A non-judgemental approach
  • Experience in triage (desirable).
  • A full clean NZ drivers licence
  • Current APC and NZ registration
  • Shifts include weekend work, but no night shifts, as there is an on-call triage system in place overnight.

    If you think you have what it takes to make a positive change, then we'd like to hear from you.

    The closing date for application is Sunday 22 July 2018. All applications should be submitted online at the Corrections website.
