Aboriginal Graduate Nurse and Midwife Programs

Section menu

The Royal Women’s Hospital seeks to contribute to the health and well-being of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We believe that nurses and midwives are key frontline staff in the health service.

As an Aboriginal nurse or midwife you have the potential to have a direct impact on the health and well-being of your community. In order to help you achieve this, in addition to your own professional goals we offer an Aboriginal Graduate Nursing and Midwifery program which complements the mainstream Graduate Nurse and Midwifery Program, Graduate Nurse and Graduate Midwifery Programs.

Additional supports are offered to Aboriginal participants including assisted application processes, culturally appropriate support and professional and peer development activities.

For assistance in developing your application please email the Coordinator via the HR Enquiries email address.
