Internal Applicants Only

We are now seeking applications from dynamic and career driven Registered Nurses, preferably with experience in, or a strong desire to grow in, the specialty area of Stroke nursing, to help us continue to provide top quality, patient-centred care on a fixed term basis, in a Clinical Nurse Specialist role.

About the Role 
We are seeking a dynamic nurse who will take a lead role in the service delivery across the organisation at Southland Hospital in the Senior Nurse team. The Stroke Clinical Nurse Specialist role is an advanced nursing role aimed at improving the management of acute stroke patients from the Emergency Department through to discharge. It is not expected that this role will be involved with the day-to-day clinical care of stroke patients, but that it will work in an advisory and leadership capacity.  The Stroke Clinical Nurse Specialist role will support the implementation of Ministry of Health measures and be actively involved in quality improvement initiatives that improve the care of patients.

What’s on Offer

  • A fantastic opportunity to apply and extend your nursing skills, providing you a platform for self-directed but supported professional development.
  • A varied and dynamic work environment. 
  • Nurse led clinics which includes working with the wider multidisciplinary teams.
  • Meaningful work in a diverse speciality

About You
We are looking for a positive and confident Registered Nurse who has the drive and enthusiasm to motivate staff and engage them in their clinical development; you will be a respected professional in your own right, and an exceptional team member with strong communication skills. 

To be considered for the role you will be a committed team member with a passion for modelling quality nursing practise. You will have excellent communication and relationship building skills and have a minimum of 5 years practice within the defined scope of clinical speciality, and a post graduate diploma (or working towards) and/or a master’s degree. In addition, it is essential that you have experience or a keen interest in developing your knowledge and skills in this specialist area of practice.
