RECRUITMENT for graduate nurses in the Department of Health and Human Services starts next month.
Final-year UTAS nursing students will be able to apply for positions online via the DHHS website from September 4-13 for early 2014 placements.
To help graduates decide on their future, information sessions will be held between 1pm and 2pm on Wednesday at the Multi-B, Rural Clinical School, North West Regional Hospital, and from 2.30pm until 3.30pm Thursday at 2D Classroom, second floor, Mersey Community Hospital.
Health Minister Michelle O’Byrne said the Tasmanian Government was committed to helping as many graduate nurses as possible find employment across the three Tasmanian health organisations.
“As was the case last year, 115 positions are available across the year throughout the Tasmanian public health system,” Ms O’Byrne said.
“This number has always fluctuated depending on opportunities within the practice setting and the nursing workforce needs.
“The government is committed to offering additional positions where opportunities are available.”
Ms O’Byrne said this year, clinical areas exceeded the target of 115 positions, with 130 new graduates appointed.
She said final-year UTAS nursing students had a range of options open to them after graduation.
“As in previous years some graduates seek positions within the DHHS while others choose to secure opportunities within private hospitals, private practices, aged and community care, private mental health facilities and interstate,” Ms O’Byrne said.
“Historically, some nurses have also chosen to undertake additional nursing studies while others have sought experiences overseas.”
The Department of Health and Human Services is working with Health Workforce Australia to find ways to keep nursing graduates engaged in nursing.
