Start Your Nursing And Midwifery Career With NSW Health

​​Graduate nurses and midwives are being encouraged to start their careers in Australia’s largest and busiest public health system, by applying to work for NSW Health.

​Each year NSW Health runs GradStart, a state-wide recruitment process for graduate nurses and midwives.

Minister for Heath, Ryan Park said there are great personal and professional benefits to working in the public system.

“Our nurses and midwives are really at the heart of healthcare in our hospitals and health facilities, and I encourage graduate nurses and midwives to apply to join the NSW Health family,” Mr Park said.

“Beginning your career in the NSW public health system offers comprehensive professional development, variety, and ongoing training and support as you build your future in NSW Health.

“It also provides opportunities to work in different locations, and I hope graduates consider options in rural and regional settings which can offer both a great lifestyle and professional opportunities.”

Candidates also may be eligible for scholarships and study subsidies.

Applications for NSW Health’s 2025 GradStart intake are now open and close on 1 July 2024.
