Go rural and thrive
If you visit the Canterbury District Health
Board careers website for nurses, you will
find a wealth of opportunities for everyone,
from new graduates to senior staff.
We have all had some connection with a
major hospital -- whether through injury or
illness ourselves, or to someone we care
about. What we sometimes overlook is that
there are smaller rural hospitals scattered
throughout the region. Of 14 hospitals
spread over seven different districts (26,881
square kilometres), serving more than
510,000 people, there are eight rural
hospitals in Canterbury, the largest being
Generally based out of Ashburton
Hospital, but also covered from some
of the smaller rural hospitals, services
include: general medicine and surgery,
palliative care, maternity services,
gynaecology services, assessment
treatment and rehabilitation services for
the elderly, and long-term care for the
elderly, including specialised dementia
care and diagnostic services.
Also offered are rural community
support services: daycare services, district
nursing, home support, meals on wheels,
and clinical nurse specialist services in
many areas, including respiratory, cardiac,
diabetes, wound care, urology, continence
and stoma therapy.
The Rural Health Service also operates
Tuarangi Home, providing hospital care for
the elderly in Ashburton.
With the focus being on the close-knit
community, rural nurses get tremendous
job satisfaction from caring for the people
in their community, getting to know them
and working with other health
professionals to ensure their community is
looked after. Whether you're on the coast
in Kaikoura or on the plains in Ashburton,
there are opportunities for rural nurses
throughout the Canterbury region, with a
lifestyle to match. Whether an inpatient or
community setting appeals, there is
something for everyone.
No day is the same for a rural nurse.
Nursing in a rural community not only
enables you to see firsthand the care you're
providing, but you will also become a
generalist and specialist all in one.
Working autonomously and often in
isolation means you will extend your
knowledge and skills in all clinical
settings, from chronic to long-term to
maternity care. With the introduction
of a Rural Nursing Diploma, this area of
nursing is now recognised as a specialty
and is fast becoming a popular choice for

available at Otago University, covering all
aspects of rural nursing.
