Was a great learning experience. The compulsory post-grad papers were interesting (you can't be a qualified Plunket nurse unless you pass these). Loved meeting the clients and whanau. Did find the hours long and we were constantly short-staffed with high staff turnover.

I found that it was just a little to much for me going out at night time, to do this job, I found that I was just not doing things how they should be done as I was not up with the play on the things I need to do I needed more training.
Pros

Cons
Needed more training for this job

A typical day is around making contact with 7 to 10 clients. Clinical assessments, additional calls, Phone calls and following up on care plans
I learnt how to work within a small community on my own. Engagement with the health and social agencies within the Waikato region

The hardest part of this job was sometimes staying a lot later to answer and resolve a urgent problem. Getting relief when off sick

The position is extremely rewarding to watch the families grow and thrive
Pros
Thrived on working in the isolated community I love a challenge
Cons
Often needed to go over and above and think out of the square

Interesting variety of work. Friendly and relaxed atmosphere, with a good public service ethos underlying the guidelines at work. Many of the staff are long term workers.
