About the Opportunity
Mid North Coast Local Health District (MNCLHD) is currently seeking a senior nursing leader to step into the role of Executive Officer/Director of Nursing at Bellingen and Macksville Hospitals (EO/DON).

- Develop a strategic plan for the nursing service and contribute to strategic planning at an organisational level.
- Engage closely with internal and external stakeholders to align service delivery and meet community needs.
- Develop and embed a positive workforce culture open to critical reflection and change, in line with MNCLHD's CORE values.
- Oversee and develop a robust governance framework to manage, evaluate and identify areas to enhance performance.
Regular travel between the two sites will be required, with some additional travel required across the District.
The successful candidate will have current registration with the Nursing & Midwifery Board of Australia and;
