NURSING STAFF RECRUITMENT
Wellington ICU employs approximately 118 Staff Nurses working 12-hour shifts to provide around-the-clock care to the patients in our unit. The nursing ratio for Intensive Care patients is 1:1 and 1:2 for High Dependency patients.
Availability of jobs is variable. Expressions of interest or applications can be made by two means:
- By direct application to the Charge Nurse Manager
- By applying to join the Critical Care Rotation (see below)
We also have close links to the graduate school of nursing at Victoria University with the school physically located on-site within Wellington Hospital and several members of ICU staff teaching on courses.
Critical Care Rotation
The Critical Care Rotation currently consists of 3 nursing placements, each of 8 months duration run over a total of 2 years.
Any members of nursing staff within Capital & Coast District Health Board are able to apply; external applicants have also been successful previously.
Applicants are taken from nurses completing the NETP (Nursing Entry to Practice) programme or those who are in their first 2-3 years post-graduation who have a passion and skill in areas of acute care nursing.
Placements are allocated to 3 of the following areas: ICU, Coronary Care/Cardiothoracics, Emergency Department, or Neurosurgery.
Two post-graduate papers (through Victoria University) are expected to be completed during the total two year rotation.
Six ICU nursing positions are appointed from the rotation over a two years period.
