Record Number of Graduate Nurses to Join Epworth

February 10, 2019| Epworth News /

A record number of graduate nurses and midwives are set to join the Epworth team in February and March this year, for an exciting opportunity to consolidate their theoretical and clinical skills.

This group of 153 nurses will be engaged across all areas of clinical work at Epworth, generating much excitement and interest.

Paula Stephenson, Executive Director Clinical Services and Chief Nursing Officer, says, “Our new graduate registered nurses and midwives are our workforce of the future and Epworth is dedicated to building a workforce that continually strives for the best for our patients”.

Di Bulmer from Recruitment Services says, “It’s a team effort for this record number of graduate nurses and midwives, from their comprehensive onboarding to being welcomed to the Epworth family”.

The orientation for the first part of this group was held at the MCG, with further orientations set for March and July.

Epworth Richmond employed more than 96 per cent of last year’s graduate nurses, showing just how important this program is for Epworth’s future talent.
