Give Grad Nurses A Chance

Please email [email protected] if you have been unsuccessful in getting a position. Please add your city you live in and university :)

This group has been formed for all that support more grad program placements are to be available for graduating nurses. Hundreds of freshly graduated nurses are missing out of grad programs and resulting in unemployment due to not enough places.

We successfully rallied at parliament house on Monday the 26th of November at 12:00 and had 80+ people turn up and support as well as alot of media coverage on the day.

We have had support by Mr Roger Cook, Shadow Minister of Health, United Voice, and the national office of the ANF.

We have started an online petition which can be found here:
