About this Role:

Medacs Healthcare are seeking Mental Health Registered Nurses to help cover some gaps in the roster in some of our fantastic Clients busy Acute Inpatient Units in South & Central Auckland. There is always a possibility for this to turn into a permanent position for the right candidate. Could this be you?

The successful candidate will be available for a full-time roster or for a minimum of x2 days/shifts per week and have past Acute Mental Health experience.

Our Client's high-tech facilities provides 24 hours Mental Health assessment and treatment services for people with a range of serious or complicated Mental Health related illnesses. You will help to provide a safe environment where people can stay for short periods of time. You will be required to work independently and manage your own patients, but with the full support from your colleagues, management and staff within the multi-disciplinary team.

Why choose contract nursing?

Contract Nursing is a great option for those Nurses who are only after a minimum of x2 shifts per week that will provide a second income alongside their permanent role or maybe to save for a winter get away, special occasion or Christmas festivities!? Contract Nursing is also a great opportunity for candidates who are not sure which area of Mental Health Nursing they are wanting to work in. This gives our Nurses the opportunity to work for 2-6 months at a time in full time contracts at 1 facility before moving onto the next facility once that contract has come to an end. This is also a good opportunity for candidates who are not sure if they want to apply for a permanent position and would rather complete a few months on contract before taking the leap. Our clients are always open to take our Nurses on a fulltime basis once their assignment/contract comes to an end. You are in control of your destiny.
