Registered Nurse - Greymouth / Reefton

Whānau Āwhina Plunket Nurses are a pillar of our communities, often the reassuring voices and clinical experts for new māmā, pāpā and wider support networks as they transition and respond to the demands that come with a growing whānau.

Our West Coast team are seeking a Registered Nurse to work on a part time basis, this 0.8 FTE position encompasses primarily the Greymouth/Reefton area. If you’re looking for a role that moves beyond primary or hospital-based care, where you can provide ongoing support and see the impacts and outcomes of your nursing excellence, this is it.


Te Whiwhinga mahi | The opportunity

You will deliver services in a combination of booked Clinics and Home visiting opportunities and be supported by a local Clinical team including Kaiawhina, Health Worker and Clinical Leader.

Our work requires nurses who are ready to take action in order to build sustainable and responsive care plans that support holistic health.

The care we provide often requires working with multiple agencies and specialists – social workers, food banks and other community groups, while it will not be up to you alone to make the difference, you’ll be able to leverage and work with other community support and our Whānau Āwhina services to respond to the needs of our community.


He kōrero mōu | About you

We’re interested in hearing from new graduates, established nurses and we also have our Return to Nursing Competency Assessment Programme for nurses who have not practiced recently.

The uniqueness of the whānau and aiga that we connect with is what makes our role interesting, you will be flexible in your approach, but always with a listening ear, manākitanga (support), ngākau (respect) and the ability to provide culturally safe care.

While the autonomy which comes with working on your own and home visiting will be attractive to you, your ability to work in collaboration with others will be the key to your success. Our team place our community at the centre of what we do, and you will share this value.

  • Be a registered nurse
  • Hold or be able to obtain an Annual Practicing Certificate
