If you are looking for an Agency that helps you to travel in your own backyard, Healthcare Australia has you covered.
We catch up with Craig Brooks, a Register Nurse who loves to work and travel. Craig explains to us how we’ve helped him see many parts of Australia and tells us about his experiences working as a Remote Area Nurse.
Do you have a specialty?
I do, I have been a Registered Nurse for nine years, I am currently working in Emergency.
Which Healthcare Australia brands have you worked for?
I have worked with WANA when I was working in rural Western Australia
What made you decide to work in the healthcare industry?
I always knew I wanted to work in the healthcare industry. I loved sport and I think that might have had a lot to do with my interest in health. A guy who I played cricket with years ago was a nurse and this eventually helped me to make the decision to study nursing. It was the best decision I ever made.
Why did you decide to register with us?
I have travelled a lot during my life overseas, but I have not seen that much of my own country. I thought it would be great to see regional and rural Australia, so I registered with WANA to work in Port Hedland WA.
What has your experience been like working with us?
It has been really interesting. Healthcare Australia has allowed me to travel due to its national scope and experience cultures very different to my own. I love that you provide unlimited opportunities across the country.
Would you recommend working with us to your friends?
I would definitely recommend working with any Healthcare Australia brand to my friends. I have had such a positive experience and learnt so much professionally. Being provided the opportunity to work in a remote community has really opened up my eyes and helped me become a better nurse.
Why did you want to work in a rural and remote community?
I am someone who loves a challenge and a bit of an adventure, so I thought it would be perfect to combine these attributes with my career. Working in Port Hedland which has a population of roughly 16,000 was very different to working in a city hospital.
