Registered Nurse Recruitment Drive

Registered Nurses Recruitment Drive Tile
Remote Area Health Corps (RAHC) needs experienced Registered Nurses (RNs) and Remote Area Nurses (RANs) for short-term paid placements in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. This is a unique opportunity to meet and treat the people of the Northern Territory and help us train the next generation of Health Professionals (HPs). It’s an experience that could change someone’s life. Yours.

You don’t have to give up your regular job or practice to work with RAHC, as RAHC placements work around your other responsibilities. This Federally-funded programme offers RNs and RANs the opportunity to undertake short-term paid placements (3 weeks – 12 weeks) in remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Australia. 

To ensure all RNs and RANs feel well prepared and supported for their remote placements, RAHC provides ongoing 24/7 support throughout your placement, cultural and clinical orientation, and professional development opportunities through our online eLearning platform. All your travel and accommodation is arranged by RAHC including an additional two weeks allowance where isolation is required.

To help us train the next generation of Health Professionals (HPs), we are also seeking experienced nurses to become Remote Educators (REs). An RE supports new-to-remote HPs by providing orientation, education and support on their first remote or very remote placement.

Each RE placement is typically 5-14 days and a daily travel allowance is offered for the duration of your contract. The programme offers competitive pay rates and 24/7 support from the RAHC Clinical team. For more information including qualifications, experience and documentation required, please click here

You will need to apply or submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) as an RN to be considered for the RE programme. Once you have applied, if you meet all the criteria, someone from our Clinical team will be in contact to let you know if you made the programme. 

In short, all you need to do is what you do best and focus on delivering high-quality primary healthcare to our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders population in the Territory.
