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 Wahine, their families and the community.

We currently have positions available at Auckland Region Women’s Corrections Facility for nurses who can demonstrate;

  • The ability to assess and respond to an emergency situation

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 and be eligible to work in New Zealand
