My strength, is not the strength of one, it is the strength of many

What you'll do with your time:

  • Complete assessments and provide immediate and ongoing care for patients
  • You will think on your feet and be responsive to the demands of the unit
  • You may also be called on to assist the wider nursing team in other areas such as Primary and Community when required

This is a unique role within healthcare in NZ where you will be able to extend your practice not only in an acute care setting as well as working within inpatient care, but you will also have the flexibility to expand further. With the new model of care that is being introduced here in Buller we are changing the way that Health Care is being delivered to our community and you will be involved in this new model.

  • Enthusiasm and a desire to work collaboratively within the high preforming team
  • Excellent communication and organisational skills
  • Ability to flex across services when demand dictates as per CCDM
