Here at the West Coast DHB we really do have it all


Hospital based general nursing at Grey Hospital is where you’ll gain a broad overview of health on the Coast and work across all areas of the hospital.


We have a wide range of services including a comprehensive Mental Health service including inpatient and community, and acute, rehabilitation, child and family, and alcohol and drug services.


As a member of our district nursing team you’ll provide follow up care from GP practices and post discharge from hospital services. You will provide continuity between primary practice, patient and specialist hospital services.


Our rural nurse specialists work in our most remote areas providing care for the community in collaboration with a GP. Together they are the first responder for any emergencies in the district.


As a rural nurse you know you are integral to your community. You’ll be able to identify community needs and do something about them. You’ll get very broad experience, building your skills and knowledge, giving you the confidence to manage any situation.


Whichever role you choose you’ll be part of a great team on the Coast but also work in close collaboration with colleagues at the Canterbury DHB. Your professional development is ensured by Nurse Educators working with the Canterbury Professional Development Unit and providing training, maintenance of core competencies and educational support. You’ll be equipped to progress your career in whichever direction you choose.


New Zealand’s West Coast is a great place to
further your career.


The work is as varied as the scenery, which attracts visitors year round from all over the world. On your doorstep is the landscape others pay tens of thousands to experience.


It’s all yours on the coast, along with top rate professional development opportunities, colleagues who share the straight-shooting, no nonsense approach of the locals, and a community that truly values its health workers.
