Starship nurses are focused on delivering the highest quality nursing care to pēpi (infants), tamariki (children), taitamariki (youth) and their whānau (family).

We work in partnership with tamariki and their whānau acknowledging their uniqueness, right to quality healthcare, optimal health outcomes and quality of life.

Our nurses are inspirational and have so much to be proud of, striving continuously to provide exemplary nursing care, professionalism and to uphold patient safety. Nurses work collaboratively as part of multidisciplinary teams in a variety of nursing roles and settings throughout Starship.

At Starship we value nursing’s contribution and aim to provide an environment where nurses can flourish, have a voice, contribute and are valued. We focus on collaboration, innovation and development with the aim of enhancing outcomes for tamariki.

Ultimately we want to support nurses to be the best they can be.
