Why live and work in WA?
Welcome to wonderful Western Australia where the weather is great, the beaches are sublime, the countryside is as diverse as it is beautiful and above all the people are warm and friendly. There are few better places to live and work in the world.
While it may sound like sun, sand and surf, Western Australia also offers a professionally rewarding environment for nurses and midwives. It makes perfect sense to consider your move here.
There are excellent job opportunities in nursing and midwifery. Experienced nurses are required for a variety of areas, particularly critical care, emergency, mental health, neonatal intensive care, paediatrics, and rural.
WA Health is committed to ensuring the State's public health service is well equipped to promote and protect the health of Western Australians now and into the future. We are upgrading our hospitals and building new facilities, including a new state-of-the-art tertiary hospital in the southern metropolitan area and we are implementing a range of strategies to increase the numbers of nurses and midwives and support their workload through national benchmark levels of nurse-to-patient ratios.
Since 2006, WA Health has sponsored the employment of over 750 trained nurses and midwives from overseas.
