The ultimate work/life balance for Nurses


“I have recently moved to Perth from Melbourne. Nursing in Perth is so different. The weather is a lot warmer and the lifestyle is very coastal. I get the opportunity to go to the beach and beachside cafes before work with my partner and dog, which is what I love about Perth” WANA RN – Rosanna Mileti.

If nursing in the most secluded big city on the globe excites you, then you need to consider Perth, Western Australia as the next step in your Nursing career.
