Our placements are the Best in the West… Nursing in the Goldfields.

The Goldfields Rural & Remote Nurses

For some of our candidates, nothing beats an ocean location on the coast of Australia, especially with summer fast approaching! For others, the idea of experiencing “real” Australia, with the red dirt, inland towns and the outback 4 wheel driving is just the adventure they are seeking.

If you’re searching for the best of both worlds, the Goldfields will tick all your boxes.

The Goldfields is a large region based in Western Australia, and touching the border of South Australia. The entire area makes up an area of almost 800,000 square kilometres.

Some of the local towns include:

Esperance: Beautiful coastal Esperance sits on the Great Australian Bight and is renowned for amazing beaches, great surfing, diving, four-wheel driving and hiking expeditions. This region has a 30-bed rural health hospital.

Kalgoorlie: Home of the “Super Pit” open cut gold mine, Kalgoorlie is Australia’s largest outback city, and the hub of the Goldfields region. It’s a great place to base yourself to really explore the area. Kalgoorlie has a 90-bed rural hospital, with a large maternity unit, which performs approximately 700 deliveries per year.

Smaller towns you may want to work out of include; Leonora, Laverton, and Norseman. Each has their own small, multi-purpose hospitals and a population of between 500-1000.

What does HCA offer in the Goldfields region?

We work very closely with a number of facilities in the Goldfields region. The HCA Rural & Remote team supply Registered Nurses and Midwives in a number of areas including; the Emergency Department, Maternity, Dialysis, Chemotherapy, High Dependency Unit, Theatres, Paediatrics and Community Mental Health. Placements can be from as little as 2 weeks and up to 6 months!

Want to bring a partner and/or your family along? It’s generally not a problem. If you’re going solo we normally have loads of HCA staff out at the various facilities. So…not to worry, you will make new friends along the way.

Placements may be paid at agency or facility pay rates (depending on the length of placement). Speak to a consultant today by calling 1300 885 728  if you think this is somewhere you might like to explore in 2017 or beyond!
