(Scope of Practice: Registered Nurse)
Come and join a supportive, hard-working team in our brand new MAPU facility at Palmerston North Hospital!
If you are interested in taking your assessment skills to the next level, and be part of a supportive team that will help you grow in your role, we want to hear from you!
MAPU is a dedicated area that accepts acute medical patients from the Emergency Department. With a shorter stay for patients, around 24 – 48 hours, this isn’t your usual medical ward. The emphasis is on rapid patient assessment and treatment, with the aim of either ran early discharge or a clear plan of care on admission.
We are looking for experienced, quick thinking and dynamic registered nurses to join the team to cover rostered, rotating shifts. In this fast paced, ever changing environment, no two days are the same!
We will also be shortly moving into our brand new MAPU facility, located at the front of Palmerston North Hospital, right next door to the new EDOA facility. The new, purpose-built facility has state of the art equipment, and increases our bed capacity from 15 beds to 20. We will require additional RNs to work rostered, rotating shifts to join our team. Various permanent hours (FTE) will be available and actual hours of work will be negotiated with the successful applicant/s.
It’s never been a better time to Make the Move to MidCentral and explore our beautiful rohe!
