Registered Nurse - Level 2

Kimberley Renal Services (KRS)

About Kimberley Renal Services

Kimberley Renal Services (KRS) includes 4 Renal Health Centres based in Fitzroy Crossing, Broome, Kununurra, and Derby and a mobile prevention unit.

The incidence of Kidney Disease in the Kimberley is one of the highest in Australia. Chronic Kidney disease (CKD) and End-Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD) incidence within the Aboriginal population of the Kimberley greatly exceeds the national burden of disease. Dialysis prevalence for this region has more than tripled in the last decade and is increasing at a much faster rate than in the rest of Western Australia (WA).

KRS and the regional Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services (ACCHS) have developed a renal strategic plan to help combat this health crisis. This has enabled many patients to return to the Kimberley from Perth, which is 2,500kms away, to receive their treatment.

About the Opportunity

Kimberley Renal Service has an opportunity for a dedicated Level Two Registered Nurse to join their KRS team in Derby, WA, on a full-time basis.

Reporting to the Clinical Nurse Manager, you will deliver culturally appropriate holistic renal health care to the Aboriginal community, contributing to the development of a KRS continuous quality improvement framework. This is a supervisory role which will see you leading the support and skill development of KRS staff, including Level One Registered Nurses, Enrolled Nurses, Aboriginal Health Workers, and Patient Care Assistants.

About the Benefits

KRS is committed to improving employee knowledge, skills and experience, with staff development programs not only encouraged but often paid for by the organisation. This is a great opportunity to develop your career and help make a change in Aboriginal health practices.

For your hard work and dedication, you will receive an attractive salary of $84,960 per annum plus super. In addition, you will be given a range of additional benefits to further increase your take home pay including:
  • Subsidised accommodation;
  • Annual airfares after 12months of employment to the value of $1,683; and
  • 5 weeks annual leave for every 12 months of services
