Working as a Registered Nurse at VASS

Are you looking for a role that applies your clinical skills, yet gives you the opportunity to see best possible outcome of person centred care?

At Yooralla, we are recruiting for Registered Nurses (RN’s) to join our state-wide Ventilator Accommodation Support Service (VASS) in Melbourne’s north.

This unique service was purpose built for people who are dependent on mechanical ventilators and require high-level 24-hour support. It is the only one of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.

If you have experience in respiratory or ventilator management, intensive care or advanced acute care and are keen to get ‘off the ward’ then read on.

At Yooralla, our RN’s bring a holistic approach to their job where they support a customer’s physical and medical supports, while they live in a home-like environment.

VASS is a unique environment where customers are supported by both RN’s and a dedicated team of trained disability support workers. Working together, your expert clinical skills are highly valued and contribute to the customer’s quality of life and achieving their goals. At VASS, we’re about complete care…not a task list.
