Registered Nurse - Older Persons Health
- Permanent Part-time – 0.8 FTE
This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Registered Nurse to be part of our talented multidisciplinary team. Gerontology as an area of practice that continues to grow and develop.
Older Persons Health provides assessment, treatment and rehabilitation for the older person with complex needs. A strong knowledge base is essential to meeting the challenge of caring for older people. You will need to have high standards of competence and performance, and enjoy the challenge of moving patients toward independence by setting realistic goals and treatment plans.
Older Persons Health will appeal to nurses who wish to specialise in gerontology and rehabilitation to assist older people to attain optimal function and health. A minimum of two years New Zealand clinical experience (preferably in an Older Persons Health environment) is essential. Acute care nursing would be an advantage.
