Working in Healthcare has never been more important or meaningful

Our Journey:

Dandenong Children’s Ward is an 8 bedded unit that supports the care of patients from birth to 19 years.  With a focus on General Medical Paediatric conditions, we also care for orthopaedic and plastic surgery patients.  We have a team of highly experienced nurses, and a strong leadership team, and this enables us to support our staff in continuing to expand their nursing skills.

A Day in the Life:

Our Children’s Ward is an exciting place to be, as caring for patients from 0-19 years of age, you will be exposed to the whole spectrum of presentations for numerous conditions.  Patients don’t tend to spend too long on our ward, and this means no 2 days will ever be the same.

  • Exposure to General Medical Paediatrics along with specialist areas such as Orthopaedics and Plastic Surgery

  • Patients from 0 right up to 19 years of age, ensuring you gain a breadth of knowledge across a huge chunk of the Paediatric space

  • A team who really support work life balance and who are focussed on the health and wellbeing of each other as well as their patients

  • A passion for working in Paediatrics and providing top level care to our patients and their families

  • A willingness to learn and to continue to develop your clinical nursing skills

  • A can do attitude  and a desire to learn

On a Personal Level, you:

  • Enjoy an environment where each day is different to the last, but just as exciting

  • Are looking to join a smaller team who really support each other

  • Can commit to working across a rotating 24/7 roster

What you need:

  • Must have completed your Graduate year of Nursing

  • Current AHPRA Registration

  • A strong desire to care for Paediatric patients and their families
