Emergency Nurses - Why work at Westmead?

If you're ready for anything, prepared for everything & surprised by nothing, then emergency nursing is for you!

Emergency nursing is a recognised specialty (National Specialisation Framework for Nursing and Midwifery, 2006). Emergency nursing involves working in a time-sensitive environment with limited information and caring for patients who are diagnostic dilemmas. At Westmead Emergency we specialise in nursing medical, surgical, toxicologic and mental health emergencies, with trauma and resuscitation being a crucial component of our work.

As registered or enrolled nurses you can apply for a position within the emergency nursing team. The initial 12 months are significant in a graduate nurse's career and personal development. At Westmead Emergency a specifically designed program is in place to support the graduate nurse in this diverse and dynamic clinical environment.
