Local Health District Welcomes Latest Arrival of Nursing and Midwifery Graduates
Across the Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSW LHD) a total of 62 First Year new graduate nurses and midwives will be working in our hospitals.

Chris Crawford, Chief Executive said, “We are very pleased to welcome the new graduate nurses and midwives, who have chosen to take a rural placement and work in our hospitals.”

“Nurses and Midwives are an indispensable part of the health system and are central to the care of our patients in both the hospital and community setting,” Mr Crawford added.

The Tweed Byron Health Service Group has 32 new graduate nurses and midwives. This year four will work in the Mental Health Service while the other 29 will work across The Tweed, Murwillumbah District, Byron District and Mullumbimby & District Memorial Hospitals.

Annette Symes, NNSW LHD Executive Director of Nursing and Midwifery said “Nurses and Midwives are a vital part of the health system, who deliver a high level of care in a range of situations, which are often challenging.”

“Our Clinical Nurse Educators and Ward based Staff who mentor nursing graduates play an essential role in orientating the new graduate nurses and midwives to the hospital environment.

“These new nursing and midwifery positions provide opportunities for talented young health professionals to learn and grow as well as strengthening our health system.”

“It is hoped that these nurses and midwives will enjoy their experience working in a rural setting and decide to stay, or consider returning to the area in the future,” said Ms Symes.
