About Eastern Health


Eastern Health is one of Melbourne’s largest public health services. We are a values-based organisation committed to research and teaching, and have strong affiliations with Australia’s top universities. We provide a range of emergency, surgical, medical and general healthcare services, including maternity, palliative care, mental health, drug and alcohol, residential care, community health and state-wide specialist services to people and communities that are diverse in culture, age, socio-economic status, population and healthcare needs.



About the role


Eastern Health is offering registered and enrolled nurses with current (condition free) AHPRA registration the opportunity to re-enter the nursing workforce. Our Nurse Refresher Program provides a supported program of education, clinical teaching, ward-based learning and additional support.  The RNRP will support you to gain experience and confidence in the acute clinical setting. The program includes access to clinical educator support, professional development study days, skill acquisition via simulation based learning and clinical placement in the acute ward setting.


The refresher program will be delivered at the following Eastern Health sites:



  • Angliss Hospital (Upper Ferntree Fully)

  • Box Hill Hospital (Box Hill)

  • Maroondah Hospital (Ringwood)

  • Peter James Centre (East Burwood)

  • Wantirna Health (Wantirna)


Please nominate your preferred site within your cover letter. The program will commence on Monday 27 June 2022, with some ability to provide flexibility for those unable to commence on this date. The refresher program will be completed over a maximum of six weeks. It will be tailored to individual learning needs and learning will be based on self-assessment of needs. Successful candidates must be able to commit to a minimum of three shifts per week, with two of these shifts on consecutive days.


The refresher program is not a paid position. Participants will, however, be guaranteed an interview for a permanent position within Eastern Health, upon successful completion of the program.



About you


To be eligible for the refresher program you must have:



  • Current nursing registration with AHPRA (condition free)

  • Professional indemnity insurance

  • The commitment to complete the program of study and clinical placement hours

  • A willing to undergo pre-employment screening, including reference checks and police check

  • Excellent communication and organisational skills

  • A high degree of accountability and a supportive and engaging style



This program is not suitable for newly qualified nurses.  Applicants who have not completed a graduate nurse program, or who cannot demonstrate a work history as a registered nurse in Australia are, unfortunately, unable to be considered.



Virtual information sessions will be delivered on Thursday 12 May and Monday 16 May at 5.30pm. Please register your interest at RNRP@easternhealth.org.au  Additional queries can also be directed to this email address.
