In August 2009, SA Health's Portfolio Executive approved the transfer of the operational management of the Rural & Remote Health Service to CHSA. The RRMHS delivers comprehensive mental health services to the communities of country South Australia by providing:

  • acute inpatient care
  • mental health training to staff
  • distance consultation-liaison services
  • coordination and management of mental health specialists
  • clinical services to remote Aboriginal Communities

With the establishment of CHSA as a health region, it was deemed appropriate for these services for country people to be managed by CHSA. It has been acknowledged that the integration of the RRMHS within a country service delivery system is also a critical factor in supporting the establishment and operation of new levels of treatment and acute care in rural locations, such as Limited Treatment Centres and Intermediate Care.

The Clinical Nurse will provide advanced nursing services in the Rural and Remote Health Service, including both the Inpatient Unit and the Emergency Triage Liaison Service. The Clinical Nurse is accountable for his/her own practice standards (within the ANMC RN Competency Framework and National MH Workforce Standards), activities delegated to others and for the guidance and development of less experienced staff. 

Registered or eligible for registration as a Nurse with the Nursing & Midwifery Board of Australia and who holds, or who is eligible to hold, a current practicing certificate.

Appointment will be subject to a satisfactory Criminal History Check.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander applicants are encouraged to apply. Job ref: 593675
