Find The Top Nursing Jobs In Australia

Registered Nurses play an important role in identifying, evaluating and treating diseases, disorders and other health issues across a wide range of patient conditions. Many registered nurses also provide preventative health and rehabilitation services to help patients lead happier and healthier lives. Whether working in locum or permanent positions, nursing professionals use their in-depth training and evidence-based practices to enhance the health and well-being of patients from diverse backgrounds. The field of nursing can also include healthcare administrators and health service management roles, who all ensure medical facilities and public programs are operating at peak efficiency.

What kind of jobs can an RN have?

Registered Nurses have the flexibility to do a number of roles within the healthcare sector, in both public hospitals and private institutions. Nurses can work anywhere from within a school to even a cruise ship! You can specialise in psychiatric nursing, or do a more research based role. Whatever your interest, there is a job out there for you, working as a midwife, in aged care, pharmaceutics, hospices, disability, emergency, rehabilitation, paramedicine or even vaccinations.


Are part-time nursing jobs available?

More and more Australians are looking for more flexibility in their work and businesses have had to adapt to the changing needs of the workforce. As a result, more and more jobs are casual, part-time or even split-shift to help Registered Nurses juggle their many priorities and work-life balance.


Find highly paid opportunities without hassle

Nursing careers come with different responsibilities, work settings and compensation estimates, which is why it’s crucial to weigh your options before taking on a specific role. In terms of salaries, nursing career pays are influenced by location, season, specialty and other economic factors. That said, most nursing staff fall into the following salary ranges:

  • $60 000 - $180 000 for permanent positions, depending on the specialty
  • $300 - $1200 per day for locum positions, depending on the specialty

Taking on a permanent position within nursing typically provides more job stability, day-to-day consistency and greater access to promotion opportunities at medical facilities. Alternatively, working as a locum allows you to have a more flexible schedule, service patients in remote areas and experience the work/life balance offered by different employers. Some nursing professionals choose to supplement their full-time jobs with locum roles to gain more experience in a particular practice area or to increase their earning potential.

Whatever reason you have for seeking out locum or permanent positions, as a nursing agency Careers Connections can help you find, apply for and secure nursing jobs which provide that much needed critical care and matches your working preferences.
