Rural Nurse Specialists - South Westland


We are recruiting two Rural Nurse Specialists (RNS) for the South Westland Area Practice.   You will find work in South Westland is unbeatable in its diversity, dominated by lush native bush, with an enviable climate and a laid back unique life style.  So, if your passion is for patient centred rural health care, want a challenge and the opportunity to work within a wider collaborative health team, South Westland this is the place for you. 

One position is based in Haast 0.5 FTE (plus weekend on call).  The second position is a 0.8 FTE position as the Roving RNS.  Although based in the Glacier region it covers staff leave (including on call) throughout South Westland and therefore involves travel.  Accommodation can be discussed at enquiry.
