Waitemata District Health Board is embarking on its biggest recruitment drive ever, seeking 100 new nurses before the end of June.
The DHB wants the nurses for a range of new positions throughout the district spread across different departments.
Chief executive Dr Dale Bramley says the creation of 100 additional nursing jobs is aligned with the organisation’s promise of “best care for everyone” and will also support wards to have more nurses at the bedside.
Waitemata DHB currently serves a population of almost 650,000 people, and the figure is expected to grow to more than 800,000 by 2037.
“To continue to deliver on our promise, we need to evolve alongside our growing population,” Dr Bramley said.
