Mental Health, Addictions and Intellectual Disability Services understand that for many people coping with their illness or disability is not easy at the best of times. In recognising the importance of helping people to seek help and to recover we provide a range of services that help people to live a fulfilled life.

We are looking for nurses who have completed their Bachelor of Nursing in New Zealand (or are about to) to join our dedicated teams to help make a difference to all New Zealanders accessing our services.

You will be someone who thrives on delivering evidence based nursing care, an active member of the nursing team and actively role modelling professional behaviours.

As a new entry to specialist practice participant, you will be offered a 72 hour a fortnight fixed term contract that coincides with the tertiary education calendar to enable you to take paid study leave to complete the academic requirements of the programme. You will be offered two rotations within the services which may include adult, youth, older adult, forensic, community, early intervention, intellectual disabilities, Maori mental health or Health Pasifika.

We partner with Whitireia New Zealand (www.whitireia.ac.nz) to offer a comprehensive introduction to Mental Health, Addictions and Intellectual Disability Nursing.

This partnership enables you to complete a Postgraduate Certificate in Nursing (Mental Health) by the end of the NESP Programme.

With the increase in demand for our services, there are plenty of opportunities to grow your career and specialise as nurse in mental health, addictions and intellectual disability setting.
