Nursing and midwifery recruits join the ranks

Over 300 fresh-faced graduates have joined the ranks as part of the District’s 2022 nursing and midwifery intake.

Kate Hackett, Director of Nursing and Midwifery Services, said it’s heartening to see our new generation of nurses and midwives kick-start their careers at SESLHD.

“The contribution of nurses and midwives to our patients and their families is invaluable, particularly at this unique time during the COVID-19 pandemic,” Ms Hackett said.  

“Many of them have already made a profound impact on our community, working on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic whilst learning on the job as students.” 

“Having come up through the ranks myself I know nurses and midwives are a special breed of people,” Ms Hackett said.

“They look after people at the most challenging and vulnerable time in their lives, and deserve all the support in the world. We wish our new starters the very best for their exciting careers.”
