Tairawhiti District Health Board

Tairawhiti District Health based in sunny Gisborne, New Zealand  has an amazing opportunity for a Nurse Practitioner (NP) or NP intern in our Orthopaedic Department.  The role involves independent management to patients in the outpatient, inpatient and perioperative settings with a specific focus on improving patient outcomes through optimisation of co-morbidities perioperatively.   The NP role is also essential in providing care to patients who are not surgical candidates through optimisation of their non-operative management and modifiable risk factors that are impacting patient wellbeing. There is also opportunity to help lead the department into a more interprofessional model of care to best meet the needs of our community.   If interested or you would like further information please contact  Lynsey Bartlett,  Clinical Care Manager, Surgical Services  via email Lynsey.Bartlett@tdh.org.nz
