SESLHD welcomes 2019 nursing and midwifery intake

Our newest cohort of nursing and midwifery graduates have begun their orientation in health care facilities across South Eastern sydney Local Health Distrrict (SESLHD).  

SESLHD is welcoming 293 nurses and midwives this year, who will work across the District, taking up positions at St George Hospital (125), Prince of Wales Hospital (57), Sutherland Hospital (50), Sydney/Sydney Eye Hospital (15), Royal Hospital for Women (14), Garrawarra Centre (4), Calvary Healthcare (4), War Memorial Hospital (3) and Mental Health Services (21). 

Kim Olesen, Director, Nursing and Midwifery Services, SESLHD, said: “The devotion and around the clock care that our nurses and midwives deliver to patients and families makes an invaluable contribution to our health system,” Ms Olesen said.

"I wish all our new starters the best of luck – and thank them for choosing SESLHD to launch their rewarding careers.”

Each of the hospitals across the District offer new nursing and midwifery staff an experience that looks a little different, however all cohorts incorporate The Transition Principles, a program designed to provide structure and guidance to nurses and midwives new to SESLHD. The principles are intended to enable every nurse and midwife the opportunity to feel safe and supported as they adapt to change.
