Our purpose: Why we do it
When you work with the Canterbury District Health Board, you’re part of something very special. We plan, fund and deliver health services to the almost 600,000 New Zealanders that live in the Canterbury region. Our primary goal is to put people at the heart of everything we do.
The team: What we do
Te Whare Mauri Ora (Mauri Ora means essence of life or life force) is a 13 bed Forensic Rehabilitation ward. The purpose of the ward is to move patients from a more secure setting, either Te Whare Manaaki or Te Whare Hohou Roko, to a less secure environment, ideally the community. We do this by providing choices and individualised care that supports people with a mental illness to live a meaningful life, and all the time assessing and managing risk.
This is an opportunity for a skilled, highly motivated registered nurse to work closely with multidisciplinary team colleagues in this dynamic, professional and supportive environment.
We value honesty, fairness, respect and dignity.
We are seeking a Registered Nurse to join this team on a permanent basis, ideally with previous nursing experience working in Forensic Mental Health.
