About the Team and Role
We are seeking an enthusiastic, motivated Registered Nurse for our busy Radiology Service. A full range of diagnostic and some interventional procedures are performed within our CT, MRI, Nuclear Medicine, Ultrasound and Fluoroscopy.
Training will be given for the specific skills required in the Radiology Service which include cannulation, insertion of PICCS and interventional procedures. Good communication and interpersonal skills are essential and you will be expected to deliver high quality, patient focused care.
In return we offer a supportive orientation programme in an interesting and varied speciality area. You will be required to work predominantly Monday through Friday, 0830 to 1700 hours, and to also be available for our on-call roster which includes covering evenings and weekends.
You must have strong patient assessment and technical skills and be committed to working efficiently as a member of a multidisciplinary Radiology team.
We’re looking for someone who’s experienced and organised, friendly and calm, able to work independently and at the same time genuinely interested in the best outcome for both patient and team. It is imperative that you are able to hit the ground running to provide much needed support to the team and our community. Additionally you will need:
- Current registration with the New Zealand Nursing Council and a current APC, with the right to work in New Zealand.
- Demonstrated ability to work both autonomously and collaboratively with other professionals.
- Excellent time management, interpersonal and organisational skills
- The ability to be adaptable, flexible and solution focused
Location, location, location!
Southland gives you everything you’d want from a city hospital, like interesting work and a range of specialties, but there’s a small hospital feel. You’ll be on first-name terms with all the staff, including the doctors. It’s a really friendly, supportive workplace – and you’ll find that in the wider community, too.
Closing Date: Sunday 24 May 2020
