Registered Nurse – Paediatric Primary Care

The Ord Valley Aboriginal Health Service has been providing critical health and support services to local Aboriginal people since 1984. Our ambition is to deliver socially, culturally, and financially accessible health care that supports communities in the North-East Kimberley to be strong, healthy and safe. The organisation operates on the foundational pillars of Aboriginal leadership, self-determination and cultural diversity that underpin and shape the way the organisation conducts its business.

This role is responsible for providing primary health care services to clients at the clinic and in the community focusing on from 0 to 4 years of age. This includes the assessment and management of acute presentations of children to the clinic following the Kimberley Sick Child Protocols. The role coordinates the visiting Paediatrician’s lists, supports the clinic and arranges follow ups, where needed; and works closely with partnering agencies and services to ensure the focus of care is on the needs of Aboriginal clients within the context of their cultural identify and social circumstances.

Aboriginal people are strongly encouraged to apply.
