The ‘Working with Wisdom’ (WwW) mentoring and coaching model takes advantage of the knowledge and skills that experienced nurses and midwives developed during their career. The model enables senior nurses and midwives to support, mentor and educate the incoming generation of graduates, allowing the accumulated knowledge and skills of the experienced nurse/midwife to be transferred to the early career nurses and midwives.

The WwW Nurse/Midwife Facilitator will provide “at elbow” point of care support to nursing/midwifery students, new staff and staff with less experience, with face to face, on ground and/or virtual support, including development of an agreed plan for communication and supervision to promote reflective practice and problem solving, and evidence-based capability development through experiential learning.

The Clinical Nurse/Midwife – WwW (Registered Nurse/Midwife Level 2) role at this level continues to be predominantly clinical in nature; however, employees are assigned appropriate portfolios including precepting, mentoring and coaching nursing/midwifery students, new staff and staff with less experience. The allocation of portfolio responsibilities should be negotiated with each employee and be consistent with the career development plan for the employee as determined by their performance review/development plan.

In the course of fulfilling the role of WwW Nurse/Midwife Facilitator the incumbent provides specific support to the Nurse Educator(s), Nurse/Midwifery Unit Managers and Nurse/Midwife Manager(s) in the provision of education services through the management of a portfolio in clinical education.

The successful applicant must be registered or eligible for registration as a Nurse/Midwife with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia and who holds, or who is eligible to hold, a current practicing certificate with at least 3 years, full time equivalent, post registration experience.

In addition to the annual salary package, we also offer salary sacrifice benefits, employer superannuation contributions and leave loading.

Appointment will be subject to a satisfactory Criminal History Screening/Check and specific immunisation requirements.  COVID-19 vaccination is an essential requirement under the Public Health Act 2011 (Healthcare Setting Workers Vaccination) (COVID-19) to work in SA Health/health care setting.

Suitably qualified Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander applicants are strongly encouraged to apply and will be given preference as a special/equal opportunity measure under section 8(1) of the Racial Discrimination Act 1975 (Cth), and sections 34(2) and 56(2) of the Equal Opportunity Act 1984 (SA).
