Job Description

Our Purpose: What We're Here For

When you work with the Canterbury District Health Board, you're part of something very special. We're world leaders in the delivery of integrated health care, and we're always striving to Make It Better. From the carers on the front line working directly with patients and communities, to our talented support teams who enable that care. We plan, fund and deliver health services to the almost 600,000 New Zealanders that live in the Canterbury region and we're all about putting people at the heart of everything we do.

Our Culture: What Matters To Us

Ko Te Whatu Manawa Tangata Putting people at the heart of all we do

For us to continue putting our communities at the centre of our health system, we're putting our own people at the centre of everything we do. Because health is ultimately all about people. What's important around here is the way we care for and respect others, the responsibility that all our people take for delivering outcomes, and that we go about our work with integrity in all we do.

What matters to us is doing the right thing, valuing everyone, and being and staying well ourselves so we can care for our community.

The Role: What This Opportunity's All About

Based at Christchurch Hospital, our Otolaryngology Department receives acute and arranged referrals. We cater for a variety of conditions and all age groups from neonates to the elderly. We have specialty clinics that include Otology, Head and Neck Oncology, Sleep disorders, Paediatric airway and Voice clinics that are all supported by a range of health professionals including the ORL Head and Neck Nurse Specialists.

We are offering an amazing opportunity for an RN to join our service and work with the team to develop their skills and leadership capabilities. It is expected that you will work collaboratively with the Charge Nurse Manager, your nursing colleagues and hospital aides to coordinate patient flow and assist medical staff to enable smooth running of our outpatient clinics.

It is envisaged that in the future you will also help provide clinical leadership, specialty nursing care, education and will be able to meet the competencies needed to successfully run our Nurse Led Otology clinic. We would be very interested in applicants who would like to achieve Nurse Prescribing in the future.

As a key stakeholder in our service you will be committed to high standards of nursing care, with a focus on improving patient outcomes.

To be successful you will be keen to learn, motivated, organised, with exceptional interpersonal skills. The ability to engage a wide range of people, alongside a sound clinical knowledge and skills base, are key attributes for this role.

If you are an enthusiastic, motivated nurse who would enjoy working in this specialty area this could be a great career opportunity for you.

Although not essential previous experience in Otolaryngology would be an advantage.
