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.
