From the Executive Director

Melbourne Health, which comprises The Royal Melbourne Hospital and NorthWestern Mental Health, provides a strong supportive work environment for nurses with enormous opportunity for professional growth in both clinical and leadership roles.

Our vision of First in Care, Research and Learning is at the core of all everything we do. We want to be first in delivering safe and high quality care, first in integrating evidenced-based research into practice and first in developing our workforce and community.

As an organisation, the way we work together to achieve our vision is guided by our values of caring, respect, unity, integrity and excellence. We are committed to living our values in everything we do and building a positive, safe, patient focused culture to be a great place to work and a great place to be cared for.

Nursing at Melbourne Health has a long and proud history. The growth and development of nursing over time has led to major positive change in the workforce, with many of our nurses leading the way in nursing education and patient quality and safety.

In 2018, we are delighted to have 161 graduate registered nurses joining us and 117 nurses completing graduate certificate studies with our partner universities. In addition to the nurses undertaking a variety of specialist introductory courses, we are offering a range of short courses including simulation experience and welcome your interest in registering to attend.

You can find more information on our services of most interest to you and I encourage you to take the time to explore the many opportunities available to you.

Thank you for your interest in nursing at Melbourne Health.
