About the role

The primary focus of the Specialty Clinical Nurse (SCN) role is to improve health outcomes for Pacific patients admitted to hospital.  Quality improvement is an important priority as is the patient experience.  This role will provide clinical support to staff working with Pacific patients.  The SCN provides clinical leadership to the Pacific Health Unit (PHU) and promotes available support and will respond to referrals from inpatient services.

The SCN will contribute to patient care through a shared care commitment to bring about improvements to enhance patient safety, self-management and improve outcomes.  The SCN has responsibility to ensure their practice and the patient information/education provided is evidence based and speciality specific.  The SCN role models cultural competence and supports a culturally informed clinical environment.

The SCN role will enhance health outcomes for the Pacific patient population by working directly with them; as well as in collaboration with others.  This role requires effective interpersonal skills, clinical practice knowledge, and a care approach that reflects a commitment to equity and cultural responsiveness.  The SCN role needs to be an advocate for the clinical service strategic direction with a focus on Pacific health priorities.
