About the role

Maroondah Hospital Emergency Department has permanent employment opportunities for passionate, enthusiastic and agile nurses who are keen to transition into an emergency department setting.

We are looking for Registered Nurses with no or limited emergency nursing experience, but who want to build the knowledge, skills and confidence to work within our emergency and short stay areas.  Eastern Health has designed an Entry to Emergency Nursing program to help you succeed in this transition, plus you will be supported by a team of dedicated and experienced Emergency Nurses under the Advanced Preceptorship Program developed at Maroondah Emergency.

This start in emergency nursing will also open the door to a host of other opportunities to develop a career in Emergency Nursing. This includes a sixth-month Transition to Specialty Program (equipping you to work in high acuity areas of the Emergency Department) and a twelve-month Post Graduate Program (to work in critical care areas of the ED).

You will also become a valued member of a highly dedicated, multi-disciplinary team incorporating medical, nursing, clerical and allied health professionals.  We pride ourselves on our teamwork. It is through working together we are able to aspire to excellence in the care we provide to our patients and their families.
