Submitting your application

Applications for the GMHNP will open Monday 5 June 2023.

Only applications uploaded to the RMH's online recruitment system to position reference number #68476 will be accepted.

Selection process

Your aptitude for mental health nursing is often as much about your attitude as it is about knowledge and skills learnt as an undergraduate.

Your application will be assessed on your academic results, clinical reports and experience. Preferred candidates will be expected to make themselves available for an interview. The interview is also an opportunity for you to ask questions about the program.

All these approaches allow us to assess candidates for the program.

We request referee checks from your nominated referees.

Interview format

We will conduct personalised video interviews. The aim of the interview is to get to know you.
