Do you want to work as Theatre Nurse but lack experience in operating theatres? Step into a new nursing specialty and join our next New to Operating Rooms Programme.

We are inviting expressions of interest now for this popular programme currently scheduled to begin on 20 August 2018. You will have some previous nursing experience of working in an acute, surgical or intensive care type of setting within a hospital. Previous theatre experience is not a requirement but will be an advantage.

If you are selected for this programme, will be placed in a permanent or fixed term role (as available) and your employment will start with a 12 week learning programme

If you are an experienced Registered Nurse who has always wanted to work in the operating theatres, but have just never had the chance – this could be the opportunity you may have been waiting for!

You can now choose to further develop your area of interest with our Operating Theatres Department. We have over 35 state of the art operating theatres that are grouped into 5 different operating room suites providing day, acute and elective surgery across the theatres at two sites – Grafton site housing the Auckland City Hospital and Starship Children’s Health and the Greenlane site housing the Greenlane Clinical Centre.

Surgical specialties include paediatrics, neurosurgery, cardiothoracic, transplants, vascular, general, urology, orthopaedics, ORL (including major head and neck surgery), obstetrics and gynaecology. We work with world-renowned clinicians and our experienced senior nursing team work hard to achieve a supportive learning environment. Our motto is ‘Best patient outcomes in a good place to work’

So all in all, it is the perfect platform to learn from!
