Finding Employment

Whether you are looking for permanent full time or part time work, casual employment or general information, there are a number of ways of finding a position in nursing or midwifery within SESLHD:


Return to Nursing or Midwifery

Re-entry scholarships are available to assist and support nurses and midwives to re-join the workforce into permanent full time or part time vacant positions. It is not a course or a program to regain registration. More information is available on the NSW Health Nursing and Midwifery Office website.

Re-entry is open for currently registered nurses, midwives and enrolled nurses who are not working in any nursing position or have not been working for more than one year.
