Permanent, part-time opportunity

About the role

An exciting opportunity exists for a self-motivated individual, who enjoys variety within a challenging role, to join our team at our 78-bed Fairhaven 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 Enrolled and 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.

Within this position, you will be rostered for night shift duty, plus any additional relief shifts. If you are looking for a diverse and rewarding role that has a positive impact on the lives of seniors, this might be the right opportunity for you.

About you

You are a dedicated and experienced clinician often commended on your problem solving, decision making and negotiation skills. With the ability to prioritise and manage workloads efficiently, 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 should include:

  • A current AHPRA registration as a Registered Nurse with experience in clinical nursing practices;
  • Knowledge and ability to apply the Aged Care Funding Instrument (ACFI) and regulatory requirements for aged care facilities; 
  • Demonstrated comprehensive clinical knowledge within Aged Care and understanding of the ageing process and age related health issues;
  • 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.
