Far West Local Health District participates in the recruitment of internationally educated nurses and midwives, both through the NSW Health Panel of Overseas Recruitment Agencies and also where nurses and midwives apply directly to our facilities.
Far West Local Health District will work with the selected agency presenting the nurse/midwife for recruitment, or assist the individual nurse/midwife through the application and immigration process. We are skilled and confident in all aspects of international recruitment, from helping you to obtain registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia, to nominations for temporary or permanent visas.
International recruitment by Far West Local Health District has made a key contribution to the delivery of high quality clinical services, especially in areas where recruitment is historically very difficult. This has enabled us to provide continuity in the delivery of high standards of patient care, maintain safe levels of care, retain local staff, and have a diverse workforce more reflective of the cultural background of the patients seeking care.
To be eligible for employment as a nurse or midwife in Australia you must fulfill the following criteria:
