Have you ever thought about nursing in the Torres and Cape?

Torres Strait island beach

The Torres and Cape region is an area starting just north of Port Douglas, in far north Queensland, and includes all of those small islands off the coast.

The Torres and Cape region is home to over 30 primary health clinics and a small number of hospitals/multipurpose services. These healthcare facilities provide services to more than 25,000 people.  Some names that you might have heard of include Thursday Island Hospital, Cooktown Multipurpose Service, Kowanyama, Saibai Island & Wujul Wujal Primary Health Clinics – just to name a few.

The Healthcare Australia Rural & Remote team services this region by providing experienced Registered & Enrolled Nurses, Midwives and Remote Area Nurses to fill shortfalls of 2 weeks to 3 months at a time. Our help ensures the continuity of healthcare services in this vast area.

Sometimes it can be a bit of a trek to get you there, flight – overnight stay – another flight – ferry – bus…. But rest assured, all of your travel is paid for and organised by HCA. All you have to think about is being where you need to be and ready to travel!

We have numerous placements in the Torres and Cape region starting NOW, all the way through until the New Year. If you think this type of nursing might be something you would like to try then why not now? There’s no better time to take the leap than today!

There are some locations that will require you to have additional certifications to practice there to ensure that you are ready to hit the ground running – for more information, check out our blog 7 Rural & Remote Nursing Training & Education Tips or speak to one of the fantastic national R&R Consultants by calling 1300 885 728 who can answer your questions and point you in the right direction to work towards practicing in remote and rural settings!
