We’re looking for a new nurse to join our team!

- 6 August 2019


Green Square Health is looking for a GP practice nurse, who ideally is RN level 3 or above (will consider level 2) APPLY HERE

As a clinic that strives to deliver the best in preventative care, the nurse role will be a central driver in the management of chronic disease for our rapidly growing community.

Skill in using the relevant software (PENCAT, POLAR) to see where chronic disease efforts should be focused, and then facilitating the recall, booking and planning of chronic disease care for patients is our priority.

Our demographic is young, and chronic disease here doesn’t look the same as it might elsewhere. Earlier diagnosis of diabetes, inflammatory and autoimmune conditions, and chronic infections means early intervention and follow up will make meaningful differences to peoples lives.

As cliche as it sounds, teamwork is so important to us, and we’re looking for someone who will help move in the same direction as a team player.

Diligence and an aptitude for problem solving will be highly beneficial. Ideally you will be someone who relishes the opportunity to collaborate and provide clinical support to GPs and is interested in learning and growing professionally.

Other key nursing duties will include taking observations, ECGs, spirometry, administration of medication, wound management and dressings, care plans, health assessments, assisting with minor surgical procedures and immunisations. In return we will offer you above award remuneration, a supportive and flexible working environment, and the chance to grow professionally in line with our ethos of continuous improvement and education.

Desirable

  • Previous experience in practice accreditation with GPA or AGPAL
  • Previous experience in the use of patient auditing tools
  • An understanding of the Medicare Benefits Schedule

Applicants require

  • Previous experience in general practice nursing
  • Current registration with AHPRA (RN)
  • Training in CPR, undertaken within the past 12 months
  • A high level of computer literacy
  • The right to legally work in Australia
