Associate Charge Nurse Manager – Intensive Care Unit
- Permanent, 0.6 FTE (24 hours per week)
- Use your experience and expertise to make a real difference to our patient’s health outcomes
A new name is accompanying the new beginning for Critical Care in the Southern District, and we couldn't be more excited for our future. To mark the opening of Stage One of the ICU, a new name has been chosen to better describe the new direction of this important service: Te Puna Wai Ora - Southern Critical Care. This presents an exciting opportunity for someone to inspire, support and embrace change within an environment of continuous transformation. That someone could be you!
We are on the lookout for an experienced and innovative Senior Nurse to join our growing Critical Care team in an Associate Charge Nurse Manager position. This is a great opportunity for an experienced Senior Nurse to step up and provide efficient, effective and exemplary nursing leadership.
Our team provides care across the whole life spectrum including paediatric and obstetric patients, those requiring cardiothoracic, neurosurgery and patients receiving complex medical and trauma care, including renal replacement and a retrieval service utilising helicopter and fixed wing flights.
Reporting to the Charge Nurse Manager, and strongly supported by a tight knit team, you’ll foster a culture within the unit that continues to strive for excellence in clinical services and focuses on patient centred care. Key accountabilities of this role include; strategic leadership, staff education, development and recruitment, along with financial management, production planning, report writing, quality and risk management. Operationally, you will turn your hand to supervision, mentoring, and developing relationships through close liaison with other services both internal and external.
You must bring a clear focussed vision; strive for contemporary practice, and be ‘firm, but fair,’ with the ability to inspire staff, being their advocate when needed. Here within the Surgical Directorate at Southern DHB we seek leaders who embody our core values, believe strongly in the value of education and research, and who are able to build solid networks, both within the DHB and nationally.
You’ll be a Senior Registered Nurse with significant Critical Care experience, a current NZ APC and relevant post graduate qualifications, and your proven success in nursing leadership will be complemented by your knowledge of, and experience in, clinical quality, safety and best practice.
Closing Date: Sunday 28 April 2019
