The Graduate Nurse Program (GNP) at Austin Health is well established and takes between 100-200 graduate nurses each year.
Our graduate nurses participate in a well-structured and highly supportive program that offers many learning and development opportunities across our four sites.
We believe that graduate support and education is everyone’s business, and this is the culture that we foster at Austin Health.
The nursing education and ward teams strive to achieve best practice clinical learning environments for our graduate nurses, ensuring we deliver the best patient experiences and develop our early career nurses for a robust career in nursing.
We offer a range of benefits, including salary packaging, wellbeing programs and staff discounts.
We are committed to supporting our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workforce, by providing an inclusive environment where all cultures are valued and respected. We have a number of initiatives in place to support this commitment.
As a member of the Victorian Aboriginal Graduate and Cadetship Network there is a dedicated support and guidance for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander candidates.

We will be hosting a series of information and Q & A sessions for our 2023 intake.
