St George Private Hospital has eight openings available for student nurse placements.
The opportunity is targeted for people interested in a nursing career within the private healthcare system.
The placement consists of three days per week. It enables students to continue working part-time while on placement.
Ramsay Health Care offers longer placements compared to the public system. Students have the same facilitator for each placement.
They also have the opportunity to request a placement in a ward of interest, and are given days in maternity, mental health, in the operating theatre and recovery.
Student placement coordinator, Jennifer Willett, says the hospital has a strong commitment to mentoring the next generation of health professionals.
“Our focus on hands-on learning throughout the 400 hours of a student’s clinical placement which provides them with confidence in their everyday interactions with patients,” she said.
