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

Ashburton and Rural Health Services require a Nurse Educator to join their team to promote excellence in nursing practice, demonstrate nursing leadership and provide clinical expertise and educational opportunities for their nurses.

You will work with the Director of Nursing, Charge Nurse Managers, Staff Education and Development Coordinator, as well as Nursing staff to provide leadership in clinical practice and support education within nursing to develop knowledge, skills and competence to achieve optimal health outcomes.

The role will utilise research inquiry to advance nursing best practice across the sites, contribute to evidence based policy and evaluation through the quality process. This is a part-time role covering a large area and supporting a wide range of staff, therefore exceptional organisational and communication skills as well as adaptability and the ability to travel are imperative.

If you are a Registered Nurse with a broad range of Nursing experience, have or are working towards a certificate in adult teaching and/ or a post graduate qualification, we would like to hear from you.
