As well as providing direct clinical care, you will also work within the mental health service team to attain consistency of nursing practice standards and local service outcomes. Make a real difference and feel like an important part of the community. Being part of Country Health SA means you will be supported both personally and professionally, can take advantage of education and training opportunities, will have access to flexible working hours and be part of an inter-professional approach to holistic health care.
