Jenny Corlett

Tend Pāpāmoa Medical Centre

Jenny’s career in nursing began in Christchurch after graduating from with her Bachelor of Nursing in 2010 and further completed a postgraduate degree in mental health and drug addiction. Jenny honed her skills at Hillmorton Hospital, working in both the acute inpatient unit and the youth inpatient unit.

Seeking a change of scenery and a place to raise her children, Jenny moved to Tauranga. After some time devoted to her family, she resumed her career at The Doctors, Pāpāmoa and now at Tend Pāpāmoa. Jenny’s expertise lies in wound care and cervical screening, where she plays a vital role in helping women maintain their health and encouraging regular screening.

Jenny is particularly passionate about working with first-time mothers during their 6-week immunisations, offering support and guidance through their initial vaccination appointments. She thrives on the personal interactions that nursing brings, especially appreciating the opportunity to assist patients through sensitive issues. For Jenny, creating a warm and welcoming experience for every patient is a priority and a privilege.

Outside of her nursing life, Jenny is an active participant in her community and enjoys spending time outdoors, walking up the Papamoa Hills, and playing netball with her three daughters. A lover of travel, Jenny recently took her children on an overseas trip, a highlight of which was exploring Rome and Italy via a cruise ship.

I enjoy people, often the reason people present to a medical clinic is because they are needing support with something and this can sometimes be quite sensitive- I feel privileged that I can be part of their journey here and it is my priority to ensure that it is a warm welcoming experience.
