Graduate nurse program

The Bays offers an extensive graduate nursing program every year. It runs over a 52 weeks, for 30 hours (or four shifts) per week. It commences in February every year. The program is designed to support recent graduates’ transition into the working hospital environment.

It includes paid study days, orientation shifts, and clinical support by our staff and education team. Five weeks’ annual leave is included in the program – including one week at Easter and two weeks at Christmas.

The program offers rotations in medical, surgical and midwifery departments (depending on your qualification). Elective rotations may also be available in aged care, dialysis and operating theatre.


Applications for the 2017 program are now closed.
