Mō te tūnga | About the role

We are seeking Registered Nurses who are happy to work on a casual basis (as and when required) for Auckland Region Women’s Corrections Facility in Wiri.

Nursing at Ara Poutmana Aotearoa (Department of 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 issues, challenging physical and mental health problems, substance abuse related issues, as well as responding to emergencies and providing health education. 

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

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

If successful, you’ll join a high-performing health led team who are dedicated and committed to developing and embedding a Kaupapa Māori based model of care into the heart of health services delivery.

To be successful in this role, you will have:

  • Recent 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).

If you think you have what it takes to make a positive change, then we’d like to hear from you. This is a casual position, to work “as and when required”
