We are looking for an experienced, quick thinking, and dynamic registered nurse to join the Medical Assessment and Planning Unit (MAPU) team at Palmerston North Hospital.
 
This position is 0.8FTE working rostered, rotating shifts.
 
MAPU is a dedicated area which accepts acute medical patients from the Emergency Department.  With an average length of stay of around 24-48 hours our unit does not resemble the usual medical ward.  The emphasis is on rapid patient assessment and treatment with the aim of either an early discharge, or a clear plan of care on admission. 
 
Applicants must meet the following essential criteria: 
 
  • One year experience as a New Zealand registered nurse or Nursing Council equivalent registered nurse in an acute secondary care facility. The ideal applicant will have medical or Emergency Department experience.

Or

  • Three year’s post registration experience in an equivalent secondary care facility outside New Zealand AND completion of the CAP training.
If you are interested in advancing your assessment skills and working as part of a supportive team we look forward to hearing from you.
 
We are looking to fill this position as soon as possible so may withdraw the advert if the perfect candidate is found before the expiry date.  Don’t delay applying if you think you’re the right fit to join the MidCentral team!
