Job Description

Our Nurses enjoy genuine work-life balance, a very competitive salary, no night shift work, a wide range of practice work, and an environment where supportive professional career opportunities are on offer.

  • Are you interested in working in a rewarding and challenging environment?
  • Do you have strong clinical skills that are adaptable to any situation?
  • Do you demonstrate strong organisational and communication skills?

Nursing at Corrections offers many unique opportunities to develop and practise your skills in a wide range of clinical areas. On any given day Nurses working in our prison health centres provide a full range of primary health care services. Nurses assess and manage people with a variety of health needs including, physical and mental health, substance abuse, health education, as well as responding to emergencies and providing acute care.

We have a dedicated and passionate team. A team of Nurses that run each Health Centre and work collaboratively with Doctors, Allied Health staff and custody personnel. We're united by our goal of making a positive difference in the lives of offenders, their families and the community.

We currently have positions available at Mt Eden Corrections Facility for nurses who can demonstrate;

  • Recent clinical experience in primary or secondary health care nursing
  • A broad range of post-graduate clinical experience
  • The ability to assess and respond to an emergency situation
  • The motivation to continue learning and developing professionally
  • A non-judgemental approach
  • Experience in triage (desirable).

Shifts include weekend work, but no night shifts, as there is an on-call triage system in place overnight.

If you think you have what it takes to make a positive change, then we'd like to hear from you. To apply for this position you will need to be registered with the Nursing Council of New Zealand as a Registered Nurse. A full New Zealand Drivers licence is also essential.
