Full time, North Sydney

Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA) is an independent, not-for-profit organisation located in North Sydney. MIA is affiliated with The University of Sydney and Macquarie University and collaborates with academic clinicians and researchers at St Vincent’s and Mater Health, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Royal North Shore Hospital, Westmead Hospital, Macquarie University Hospital and The University of Sydney to improve the outcome of patients with melanoma and non-melanoma complex skin cancers. MIA is a major referral centre for melanoma and non-melanoma patients from NSW and Australia.

MIA is seeking a committed registered nurse to join the experienced and dedicated team of advanced practice oncology nurses to assist in the provision and coordination of care for patients diagnosed with melanoma. The successful individual will be required to work within the MDT setting, liaising with different surgeons, medical oncologists, pathologists, dermatologists, and other health professionals affiliated with MIA, who operate practices within The Poche Centre in North Sydney.

The successful candidate will be expected to provide primarily medical oncology clinical nursing care, with some surgical and wound management as required. Ultimately the position aims to coordinate the care of complex cases, patients from rural areas or patients who require direct follow up and support, provide education and clinical consultancy to healthcare professionals and patients within a medical and surgical outpatient setting. This is an opportunity to work in a world-renowned, dynamic, multi-site, multi-faceted clinical and research environment.

This represents an ideal opportunity for an experienced nurse who has exceptional communication skills and the ability to work under pressure in complex environments. The position will assist with the coordination and care for patients diagnosed with melanoma and will require direct follow up with patients. This role is an opportunity for the successful candidate to work autonomously and is ideal for an individual who is proactive and enthusiastic about the provision of high quality, coordinated care for oncology patients, and is seeking to progress their advanced oncology nursing practice.

Applicants require a degree in nursing and current registration with AHPRA. A relevant post graduate qualification would be desirable, but not essential. Ideally the successful applicant will have experience in oncology nursing, knowledge of targeted and/or immune therapies, the provision of wound care and supportive care services. The ideal candidate would have experience in the coordination of care across multiple sites and in complex environments. Education and support will be provided to the successful applicant by our team’s clinical nurse consultants.

This is a 12 month full-time parental leave position (with the possibility of extension), and the successful candidate will be offered a competitive salary. The hours are Monday to Friday with no weekend or shift work, and the expectation of flexibility during the working week to cover extended outpatient clinic days. The position will report to the MIA CNC Nurse Manager.

There is also the opportunity to participate in salary packaging arrangements that are offered to employees in the not-for-profit sector.

This role is open until 23 February 2024 unless a suitable candidate is found in the meantime.

Please note that only successful candidates will be contacted.
