Registered Psychiatric Nurse
About the role
No two days will be the same, and this is what is challenging and exciting about coming into work within our skilled nursing workforce
Our Registered nurses are passionate about Psychiatry which is why they became Mental Health Nurses in the first place. They love coming to work every day to be able to provide goal orientated holistic, patient centred care for our consumers. They work on recovery, providing consistent care that is centred around each individual and their needs, instilling hope into their journey.
You’ll enjoy the variety and challenge that comes from working with likeminded skilled senior staff and clinical mentors, while being supported by others across the program and across our large, complex health service.
We are a collaborative service and we encourage opportunities to grow your career and work in a team to ensure this consistency across our consumers journey, which doesn’t end at discharge.
We have full time and part time opportunities across a 24/7 rotational roster.
Ours is a highly connected team with strong shared values and a commitment to excellence.
You have passion and genuine interest in Acute Mental Health and inpatient services, and you understand the complexities of working in this setting. You are a dynamic, key team player and willing to contribute to the continual improvement of your skills and knowledge as a Mental Health practitioner.
You also have:
- Demonstrated Nursing experience in Mental Health
- Working towards or have completed a Post Graduate Qualification in Mental Health nursing
- Demonstrate a willingness to learn and grow your experience in this area through commitment to the team
- Current Australian AHPRA nursing registration
We will provide a safe and fast paced environment where you will be challenged and you will learn something new every day. You will be supported within the team and we value your experience and contribution to the workforce. We love to see your passion, enjoying what you do best, while building rapport with your patients to ensure that each day brings hope to their recovery and discharge. This brings you back to why you chose Nursing as a career!
