Ko wai mātou | Who are we
Starship nurses are focused on delivering the highest quality nursing care to pēpi (infants), tamariki (children), taitamariki (youth) and their whānau (family). We work in partnership with tamariki and their whānau acknowledging their uniqueness, right to quality healthcare, optimal health outcomes and quality of life.
Our nurses are inspirational and have so much to be proud of, striving continuously to provide exemplary nursing care, professionalism and to uphold patient safety. Nurses work collaboratively as part of multidisciplinary teams in a variety of nursing roles and settings throughout Starship. At Starship we value nursing’s contribution and aim to provide an environment where nurses can flourish, have a voice, contribute and are valued. We focus on collaboration, innovation and development with the aim of enhancing outcomes for tamariki.
Te whiwhinga mahi | The Opportunity
Nurses are also known to our tamariki as super-heroes, and we need nurses who, at the heart of it, want to make a positive impact. Tamariki are our future leaders of tomorrow. Tamariki have very specific health needs. We need caring nurses who understand how a healthy child develops towards adulthood to minimise the impact of illness. We are also interested in hearing from nurses who have a keen interest in specialising in this area; we will provide comprehensive child health nursing training. You will need to be able to uniquely communicate to tamariki, creating and ensuring all interactions are positive whilst walking alongside parents, whānau and careers who are engaged in the process.
The Children’s Emergency team at Starship is seeking motivated and experienced registered nurses to join the only dedicated ED in the country designed exclusively for the needs of children
The Children’s Emergency Department specialises in meeting the needs of acutely ill or injured children and young people ranging from birth to 15 years of age. Our team works within a multidisciplinary framework including Hospital Play Specialists, Social Workers, Māori & Pacific Island support workers and clerical staff who of course work closely with the nursing and medical teams.
As a CED nurse you will experience our unique and rewarding work environment full of clinical support and professional development opportunities. You will work collectively to treat the 34,000 acute attendances the busy unit receives per year and learn a range of advanced skills along the way. You will join a resuscitation team and develop the ability to triage, whilst working amongst our purpose built facility with state of the art equipment.
