Industry placements

Industry placements are usually compulsory as part of the completion of certain degrees, but can also be voluntary. Either a university or an employer can initiate an industry placement. There is usually a selection process to award placements to students, which can be on a paid or unpaid basis.

Queensland Government agencies conduct their own recruitment processes and applications can open at any time of the year. Departmental websites contain the most up-to-date information on available opportunities and closing dates.

For graduate or student nurses and midwives - contact your local hospital and health service about opportunities while studying.
