About the Role

Western Health has an excellent reputation of providing Graduate Nurses with a smooth transition from student to Registered Nurse. We achieve this by providing a multi-layered support structure from Clinical Educators through to Preceptors. We offer an extensive orientation at the commencement of the program, two further graduate study days during the year and frequent graduate specific in-service sessions. In our supportive environment we provide each Graduate Nurse with 2 clinical rotations over our multiple sites. Our Graduate Nurses are encouraged to preference these to assist building an individualised program.

Please see our website for further details on the program:-
