Be part of our brand new service!
About the role
We are expanding to secure the future of Caloundra and the Sunshine Coast as the prime location of choice for the provision of seniors residential and community care services and you will be a part of that. Opened in February this year, this brand new 96-bed residential aged care service will complement our existing retirement village in Nambour and our Sunshine Coast Home and Community Care services.
We are looking for Registered Nurses to join the team and be part of our brand new facility. Every day will be new and different for a Registered Nurse at Little Mountain Aged Care Service. During your varied day, you will work closely with the Service Manager and care management team to carry out contemporary nursing practices through assessing, planning, and evaluating resident care.
Your primary focus will be recognising resident needs and assisting them with services that enrich their daily living. In order to ensure that resident's individual care plan requirements are met, you will also provide comprehensive guidance to Nursing staff. Some of the residents you will look after for years to come and the relationships you build with them and their families will be both meaningful and significant.
Based in Little Mountain in the beautiful Sunshine Coast region, you will be covering a variety of shifts (including morning, afternoon, night and weekend shifts). If you are looking for the perfect balance of a coastal and country lifestyle as well as a rewarding role that has a positive impact on the lives of seniors, this might be the right opportunity for you.
You are excited by the prospect of joining a friendly, close-knit community, where hectic big city life will be less and beach, nature, food and culture experiences high. You should really enjoy working with older people and may describe yourself as having a "calling" for the work. With the ability to prioritise and manage workloads according to resident's needs, you are also able to work independently or as part of a multi-disciplined work team.
You can effectively communicate at all levels enabling you to achieve best nursing practices in accordance with legislation, common law and quality improvement. Understanding the importance of providing quality care to our residents, you feel rewarded by creating a genuine impact.
Your experience and qualifications for the role include:
A current AHPRA registration as a Registered Nurse with experience in clinical nursing practices;
Demonstrated comprehensive clinical knowledge within Aged Care and understanding of the ageing process and age related health issues;
Knowledge and ability to apply the Aged Care Funding Instrument (ACFI) and regulatory requirements for aged care facilities;
Availability to work a variety of shifts, including morning, afternoon, night and weekend shifts;
Intermediate computer skills.
Importantly, you will be someone who closely aligns with our organisational values of: modelling unconditional love; behaving with integrity; and being good stewards.
