Nursing and midwifery are exciting careers with a vast range of opportunities, both for the individual and for the health care system. The graduate roles increase capacity within the health system and contribute to the development of a sustainable Queensland nursing and midwifery workforce.
From large technologically advanced tertiary hospitals in our metropolitan and regional cities, to community health centres servicing rural, remote and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, we offer exciting career pathways and employment opportunities for nurses and midwives.
Queensland Health is working to strengthen its nursing and midwifery workforce and ensuring graduates have supported employment opportunities. Queensland Health encourages students to consider options outside south east Queensland to increase employment opportunities by making broad geographical preferences. Opportunities exist for graduates, extending to a wide range of clinical areas and geographical locations, including rural and remote health services. Some programs are ward-based, while others are rotations which may be through several wards in a single facility or in rural Hospital and Health Services (HHSs) that may cover a range of facilities.
