Registered Nurses – Ward 9a Inpatient and Community Forensic

Wakari Hospital, Dunedin


  • Permanent, part-time and fulltime
  • FTE available from 0.5FTE to 1.0FTE
  • Bring your positive attitude and your desire to make a difference


If you’re not from Dunedin then perhaps you don’t know just how good we have it here? With excellent amenities, schooling – primary through to Otago University, housing, recreation, great food and wine, outstanding nature, and an amazing variety of climates and locations from coastal to mountain.   Some people call it the ends of the earth, but we think it’s ‘the last best place’, so at the top of our list of reasons to join us at SouthernDHB is ‘the lifestyle’.  If you are from Dunedin then we simply don’t need to sell it to you, you already know why you’re here.


In these positions, based at Wakari Hospital high on the hills above Dunedin, with its stunning vistas of city and ocean, you’ll be working in a secure environment predominantly with patients referred from the courts and/or prison setting for assessment and/or treatment.  Increasingly we provide a rehabilitative role in assisting patients with complex needs to reintegrate into the community.  Every day you get to work with and alongside a dynamic and committed multidisciplinary team.


Enquire further, if you are a New Zealand Registered Nurse, with a current APC and mental health sector experience.  We provide an excellent orientation to our positions and will happily support your ongoing professional development needs. 


So, if you want to make a difference and hold a positive attitude to your work and others, and you’re ready to experience all the wonderful side benefits of living and working in Dunedin (if you don’t already) then we encourage you to apply.


Closing Date: Wednesday 7 June 2017
