2022’s first intake of new grad nurses, midwives join NSLHD

The first intake of the 2022 cohort of graduate nurses have joined the ranks at hospitals across Northern Sydney Local Health District. 

This week 35 nurses and seven midwives started their roles at Royal North Shore, Hornsby, Ryde and Mona Vale hospitals.

A further 168 nurses and midwives will start at the district over the coming months. 

They join more than 2,800 graduate nurses and midwives across the state who will work in public hospitals and health facilities this year in a major boost for the NSW Health system. 

NSLHD Director of Nursing and Midwifery Claire Harris said it is great to have the new graduates on board.

“While these graduates join us after a challenging two years due to the pandemic, I know the skills and experience they will gain will set them up for success into their future career.

“They will join the ranks of our frontline health workers who have been working tirelessly to care for people and keep them safe throughout the pandemic.”

Throughout their first year, graduates are provided with opportunities in a variety of clinical settings to ensure they gain a range of experience and consolidate skills and knowledge developed whilst at university.
