REGISTERED NURSE (0.8FTE OR FULLTIME)
Here at Hospice Whanganui, we believe in supporting our patients to live the best life possible with the time they have left. Through the provision of excellent palliative care, we support our patients and their whānau in achieving their goals and wishes as they journey through a life-limiting illness.
We are looking for a passionate and quality-driven Registered Nurse who wants to work in a holistic way to make a real difference in the lives of people in our community.
We believe that all people, regardless of who they are or where they live in our region should be able to access excellent palliative care and support. For this reason, most of our work is done in the community, in the homes of our patients and their whānau and in the places that they choose to be. We also have a small, five-bed in-patient unit where some of our patients may be admitted for short-term stays from time to time if they so choose.
This role will give you an opportunity to connect in a meaningful way with patients and their whānau all across our region, and to work as part of a dynamic and vibrant inter-disciplinary team. We provide 24/7 specialist palliative care to patients in our community and the registered nursing team works on a shared, rostered basis to cover the shifts in the community and the in-patient unit.
The core values of Hospice Whanganui are:
- We always strive for the best (Excellence, Aspirational and Professional)
- We do the right thing (Manaakitanga, Courage and Integrity)
- We are stronger together (Kotahitanga, One Team, Partnership)
