NURSES!! Thinking of a change for 2023?

Manuka Street Hospital (MSH) is the Nelson region’s only private surgical hospital, performing approximately 3000 procedures per year. MSH is Ministry of Health certified, providing a wide range of surgical procedures for both privately funded patients and those having procedures through medical insurance or ACC. We currently have vacancies for:


RN Surgical Ward 2-I-C – 0.8-1.0 FTE

This is a permanent role for an experienced, senior Registered Nurse to assist the Clinical Nurse Manager to lead our team in our post-op surgical Ward. The appointee will support staff in the delivery of an effective and efficient service, through provision of clinical and professional leadership to the team, our provider surgeons, anaesthetists and physiotherapists, and the wider hospital community. A patient load is expected but release time for management responsibilities is allocated.


Registered Nurse – 0.6 FTE Theatre

This is a permanent position working in our close-knit theatre team; orthopaedic experience is preferred. MSH has a suite of four modern theatres, a ten bed PACU, and ten bed Day Stay Discharge (DSD) – our new theatre, PACU and DSD opened in 2022 so the facilities are modern, spacious and functional.


We have a position for cleaning our operating theatres; theatre cleaning will suit people who want evening work (7pm-11:15pm), joining a small friendly team. Manuka Street Hospital is a living wage employer. If you have great attention to detail, we’d like to hear from you.


MSH offers free daily morning tea, free parking, a Staff Appreciation Day annually and other benefits so please give us a call if you’d like to join our team.
