The Murrumbidgee Local Health District, which includes Harden, has welcomed 85 registered nurse and midwife graduates this year.

In February, fifty two registered nurses and one registered midwife will commence work within the district. A further thirty three registered nurses will start in August.

Executive Director of Nursing and Midwifery Ms Karen Cairney said it was wonderful to have so many local graduates seeking to start their careers in a rural setting. “It is pleasing that MLHD can provide employment to so many local graduates, keeping local people in local hospitals and local communities. It is also exciting to welcome graduates from across NSW, to expose them to the career opportunities that MLHD has to offer.”

Ms Cairney said the new nurses and midwife will be welcomed and supported with a comprehensive education and mentoring program to assist the safe transition from university into the workplace. MLHD boasts a 69% retention rate of graduates who remain within local hospitals across the district. “Each nurse and midwife is linked with local nursing and midwifery management and educators so they have access to clinical or personal support when needed. Throughout their first year, graduates are provided with opportunities in a variety of clinical settings to ensure they gain a range of experience and consolidate skills and knowledge developed whilst at university.”

Ms Cairney said MLHD also provides ongoing opportunities for education and support from management to provide communities with the best of care.

Graduate nurses and midwives will begin employment with MLHD in 2020 at the Harden, Boorowa and Young hospitals in the Hilltops region.
