Registered Nurses, Tupuna – Nēhi, Tupuna

  • Permanent full time positions available for Registered Nurses with a background in mental health 
  • Registered with the Nursing Council of New Zealand with a current APC and mental health scope of practice.
  • Ability to work both autonomously and as part of a cohesive Multi-Disciplinary Team.



These positions would suit motivated nurses who have, or who would like to develop their psychiatric and medical skills, within a supportive team environment.  Good communication, interpersonal and documentation skills, along with a compassionate nature will see you excel in this area.

The positions are based on a rotating roster (i.e. 4 days on, 2 days off for 0.94 FTE), thus flexibility across all shifts - morning, afternoon, and night shifts - is imperative. A comprehensive staff orientation package is provided.

Previous Mental health experience is essential. 

If you have a current NZ Registered Nursing Practising Certificate that includes a scope of practice for Mental Health, then this could be the new career challenge for you.
