Nursing and Midwifery

Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital (SCGH) has a proud nursing tradition with our nurses at the heart of the hospital from ward through to board level.

We are the first hospital in Western Australia to be recognised as a centre for nursing excellence under the American Nurse Credentialing Centre’s prestigious Magnet ® Program.

We are the employer of choice for Western Australia’s new nurses – for each of the past five years more nursing graduates have chosen to start their careers at SCGH than at any other hospital in the State.

We offer nurses of all levels unrivalled opportunities for career progression and development. Our Centre for Nursing Education offers an extensive education and training program. Our centre for Nursing Research, which has strong links with Edith Cowan University, Curtin University and Murdoch University, use research to advance nursing practice and continually improve patient outcomes.

Registration with the Nurses and Midwives Board of Australia (NMBA) is a requirement for employment at SCGH as a nurse.

To establish whether you will be eligible for registration as a Registered Nurse in Australia you should contact the NMBA (external site) directly.

Overseas applicants must obtain NMBA registration prior to a visa being approved by the Department of Immigration.
