SwingShift Nurses provides nursing jobs for:

  • General Nurses
  • Midwives
  • Mental Health Nurses
  • Specialty Nurses (including psychiatric, intensive care, paediatric, and accident and emergency nurses)

SwingShift Nurses is also Australia’s largest specialist mental health agency and the only specialist mental health agency on the Victorian Public Sector health services tender panel.

Nursing in Australia

When it comes to nursing in Australia, conditions for registered nurses are second to none. Public and private hospitals are well equipped with the latest technologies, and most of our metropolitan hospitals are centrally located and accessible via public transport.

Australia is one of the world’s premier destinations offering an abundance of choices for nurses looking for a permanent role or just a working holiday.

There are opportunities to work in wide variety of clinical settings within all major cities. Fancy travelling around Australia and picking up shifts wherever you are? No problem. If you’re keen for a more permanent location, we can match you with local nursing facilities in the areas of practice that match your experience and preferences.

Due to Australian Nursing Agency’s extensive network, rural and remote nursing jobs in Australia’s vast outback are also available.

Information all international nurses need to know

Just as UK nurses have to register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council and Irish nurses with the Midwifery Board of Ireland, nurses looking to work in Australia must register with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency

To gain your registration as a nurse in Australia you are required to be Degree trained, those that are diploma trained may be able to gain registration if AHPRA deem so or may be asked to complete a Bridging Program in Australia.

Years of experience required to gain employment with ANA is a minimum of 12 months post qualifying.
