Dunedin is a GREAT PLACE to live and work

Don’t just take our word for it here's what our current theatre nursing staff say.

“Dunedin is a great place to live. Housing is more affordable - I have built a substantial 4 bedroom home with plenty of land for less than half a million. It also offers a great lifestyle with mountain biking tracks and surf beaches at our back door, plus there is great designer shopping”

Nancy (Theatre Nurse)

‘’Dunedin hospital theatres offers the opportunity to work in a tertiary hospital with exposure to many surgical specialties from trauma to cardiac and neurosurgery.  It is closely associated with the medical school so there are great learning opportunities for everyone”.

Jenny (Charge Nurse Manager, Perioperative)

I have 2 small children and we are so lucky, we have great schools, a great community, and it’s safe’. Everything is close and accessible and there are always lots of family activities to do rain or shine".

Janelle (Theatre Nurse)

“When I first moved to Dunedin I was apprehensive, but I have found the people to be more welcoming and friendlier than other places I have worked, both in New Zealand and overseas. We are so lucky here, on days off I can chose to go to the beach or fishing, and Queenstown, the adventure capital of the world, is just a couple of hours drive away”.

Shiela (Theatre Nurse)

“What I love about Dunedin is the ease and convenience of getting around town. There are no traffic jams and the folks are friendly”.

Dean (ENT Consultant)
