Registered Nurse, Nubeena Family Practice (Nubeena)

Nubeena Family Practice

Location: Southern Tasmania       Occupation: Nursing and Midwifery       Position Type: Full Time, Permanent      

Nubeena is a beachside township on the Tasman Peninsula. It is surrounded by world class bush walking tracks including the Three Capes walk, Fortescue National Park, Shipstern Bluff for the surfing enthusiast and the Port Arthur Historic Site. Nubeena Family Practice is currently seeking a full time registered nurse to join their team.

The Position

Nubeena Family Practice is seeking an experienced registered nurse to fill a full time position at their general practice. Flexible work arrangements will be considered.

As the practice nurse you will be responsible for supporting the two general practitioners to provide outstanding patient care to the local community members and patients.

This role offers variety, autonomy and the chance to make a difference in this small, tight knit community. The successful applicant will manage the preparation of chronic disease care plans, health assessments and general nursing duties to support the GP’s including wound care, immunisations and performing blood collection.

The Organisation

Nubeena Family Practice is a well-established local practice located in the Tasman Peninsula that has two permanent general practitioners, a small administration team and the successful applicant would be the sole practice nurse (although job share arrangements will be considered)

The practice and all the existing patients are now under the management of Sorell Family Practice. This means that whilst Nubeena is a smaller rural practice, you have the opportunity to be a part of a larger team, including the practice manager, nurse manager and their nursing team.

Any clinical or professional development opportunities will be open to the team at Nubeena and you will never feel isolated as their support and advice is just a phone call away.

What's on offer?

In addition to an above award salary, that will be negotiated based on experience, you will have all the responsibilities and variety offered in a small rural practice, while still enjoying the support from your parent practice in Sorell.

You will also be eligible to apply for the Health Workforce Scholarship program through HR+- this will allow you to access professional development opportunities and can be up to the value of $10,000.

Application Instructions

If this sounds like the role for you then please send a brief cover letter and an up to date CV to the practice manager Louise Cate or alternatively for a confidential discussion please call Louise on 6265 2341.
