About the role
Our Hospice Inpatient Units in Red Beach and Takapuna are a unique nursing environment. As a Registered Nurse in the IPU, you’ll work with the multi-disciplinary team and take pride in delivering holistic palliative care to patients and their families. You’ll provide symptom and pain management, respite and end-of-life care for patients with a wide range of diagnoses and at different stages of their disease trajectory.
We have full, part time, and casual positions available. Work/life balance is important to us and we’ve embraced new ways of working. We’re flexible, so you tell us the hours and location you want, and we’ll see what we can do!
You are a Registered Nurse, ideally with palliative care experience, but we’ll also consider nurses from similar specialties such as oncology, neurology or haematology. You have a genuine interest in palliative care, and you’re dedicated to working with patients and families with palliative needs, bringing compassion to all that you do.
You will demonstrate:
- Registered Nurse, New Zealand Nursing Council and a current NZ Annual Practising Certificate
- A genuine interest in and desire to further develop in palliative care
- Commitment to achieving PDRP Level 3 within 12 months of employment
- Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
- Adaptability, and a calm, mature attitude
Harbour Hospice is one of the largest hospices in New Zealand, caring for patients and their whānau for almost 40 years. Every day we care for more than 350 people across the North Shore, Hibiscus Coast and Warkworth/Wellsford regions, supporting them at home (or in one of our three sites) to live every moment in whatever way is most important to them.
Our bespoke services, given free of charge, include medical care, spiritual support, physiotherapy, social activities and more.
What’s in it for you?
Our people are at the heart of our organisation. Caring, courageous, compassionate and driven to deliver the best care possible, our people are the reason Hospice has the reputation that it does.
If successful, you’ll be welcomed with an in-depth induction, ongoing development opportunities including paid study leave, and a high trust culture. You’ll be an important part of a well-established, supportive and dedicated multidisciplinary team who share a passion for making every moment count for the people we care for at Hospice.
Our salary ranges start from graduate level through to experienced palliative care nursing ($29.63-$39.57). Higher hourly rates based on achieving current PDRP.
You’ll not only develop meaningful relationships with your colleagues, but best of all, you’ll make an immeasurable impact on the lives of your patients. You’ll not only give specialist care, but also help to create moments and memories that will stay with families for a lifetime.
