You will be supported by the Enrolled Nurse Graduate Coordinator and Enrolled Nurse educators in the clinical settings.

Your new role:

During the program you will be employed in one of our Adult, Aged or Youth Services. The program is run over 12 months and includes planned and supported professional development activities that are followed by a period of clinical skill consolidation.

  • Provide high quality standards of patient care within the EN scope of practice
  • Work in multidisciplianary clinical team settings
  • Perform nursing interventions and procedures in accordance with RMH policy and procedures

We believe our success comes from our people. We’re committed to being a great place to work and a great place to receive care. We have made a long-term commitment to strengthen our organisational culture through leadership, education and empowering our staff to Speak Up for themselves and each other.

About you:
