Attracting the next generation of top quality nurses to live and work in East Gippsland is hugely important to us here at BRHS.
And so we were thrilled to recognise and celebrate the latest crop of brand new nurses to complete the BRHS Graduate Nurse Program at a special ceremony at BRHS earlier this month.
The BRHS Graduate Nurse Programs have been designed to provide a valuable and varied experience for newly qualified nurses embarking on the first 12 months of their role as a registered nurse.
Congratulations to Holly Graske, Disha Gupta, Jacob Ellis, Nicole Evans, Brianna Jolley, Leizl Larosa, Chanelle Lindsay, Chloe Maiden, Lavinea McMillan, Clare Reed, Cera Searle and Marni Joiner (Orbost) on completing the Graduate Nurse Program.
The 12 month Graduate Nurse Program consists of two 6-month rotational positions throughout the hospital. Prior to the program, participants will be given the opportunity to indicate their ward preference for the program. They choose from areas such as: Medical/Surgical, Aged Care, Rehabilitation, Dialysis, Paediatrics, Emergency, Midwifery and Theatre.
The goal at BRHS is for the graduate to acquire experience and knowledge within a supportive environment, enabling them to become a competent, confident, accountable and professional health care practitioner.
The aim of our program is to equip the graduate nurse with the skills and confidence to successfully initiate known theory with practice within the health care setting. The graduate nurse will be encouraged to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills throughout the program and into their professional careers.
