World-class opportunity for senior nurses

The Central Adelaide Local Health Network (CALHN) is on the lookout for senior nursing staff to join their world-class nursing team in Adelaide – the world’s third most liveable city.

The positions will be based at two of the main hospitals in the area, TQEH and the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH).

TQEH is situated in a popular inner-city location – 10 minutes from the city and 10 minutes from the beach.

Building works on a new state-of-the art ED are underway and expected to be completed by 2024.

TQEH is a 303 bed, acute care teaching hospital that provides inpatient, outpatient, emergency and mental health services to a population of more than 250,000 people living primarily in Adelaide’s western suburbs.

Nursing Lead Ben Cahill is keen to add more senior skills to his team, including those with resuscitation, triage and ED navigation experience.

“We provide world-class care to a diverse community and we want to grow our team to meet the needs of the area and to be ready for our new services in the newly build ED.”

The RAH is part of our BioMedical precinct in the CBD, which is a hub for health and life sciences, bringing together institutions from research, education and clinical care.

The hospital has the state’s only quaternary emergency service and the RAH ED is one of the largest and most advanced in Australia, seeing more than 75,000 patients annually.

The RAH ED also has a critical role in South Australia’s disaster management protocols and the care of major trauma patients.

Nursing Service Director Skye Donoghue is looking for senior nurses who are at least three years post-graduate emergency experience to add to her team.

“We are particularly looking for nurses who have had trauma, resuscitation and triage experience.”

CALHN is globally recognised for the exceptional care our workforce provides and our vision is to become one of the top five performing health services in Australia – join our team!

What we can offer

  • Senior role in our emergency department with attractive salary package
  • Relocation costs of $2,000
