Registered Nurse - Triage and Assessment Centre

Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District

The Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District's Mental Health Service has recently commissioned a 24/7 Triage and Assessment Centre to provide consumers with a central access point for mental health assessments, diagnosis, interventions and discharges.  The Centre is focused on delivering evidence based clinical interventions within best practice models of care to achieve good outcomes for consumers, their families and their carers.

Reporting to the Team Leader, the primary accountability for this role is providing triage to consumers that present to the Service, ensuring they are assessed and treated in such a way as to meet their individual needs and support positive mental health outcomes.  To do this, you will have the ability to work collaboratively with a number of services and divisions across the District, as well as with consumers, their families and their carers.

A bit about you.....
You will be a Registered Nurse Division 1, including completion of a new graduate RN program or 12-months experience working as a Registered Nurse.  You will have demonstrated experience working with people presenting with an acute mental health problem, and the ability to work effectively across a multidisciplinary team with minimal direct clinical supervision.

You will have an understanding of the recovery philosophy and trauma informed care in Mental Health, and the ability to implement these within clinical practice. You will have strong interpersonal skills, enjoy a challenging, complex and highly rewarding work environment, and be passionately motivated to improve outcomes for mental health consumers, their families and their carers.

A bit about us........
The Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District is responsible for providing community health and hospital care for people living in the Blue Mountains, Hawkesbury, Lithgow and Penrith Local Government Areas, and tertiary care to residents of the Greater Western Region.

Our Local Health District consists of both urban and semi-rural areas, covering almost 9,179 square kilometres and an estimated resident population of almost 350,000 people.  The Dharug, Gundungurra and Wiradjuri people are acknowledged as the traditional Aboriginal owners of the land in our District.

Our Mental Health Service is based at Nepean Hospital at the base of the beautiful Blue Mountains and provides a wide range of inpatient and community-based mental health services across the entire District.
