SEVEN new nursing graduates will start their duties at Armidale Hospital in the next few weeks.
CLEAN BILL OF HEALTH: Nursing graduates will work at Armidale Hospital.
They join four other graduates in the region starting soon in Glen Innes, Tenterfield and Inverell.
This year 208 nurses and midwives will join the Hunter New England Health Service and learn from the district’s health professionals.
The recruiting drive is part of an election promise in 2011 by NSW Health Minister Jillian Skinner to enlist 2475 nurses in the first term of government.
Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall welcomed the new graduates to the region.
“These graduates have come from metropolitan and regional areas to train and work in our local hospitals and I join the community in welcoming them all to this area and trust that they relish working in a rural setting,” he said.
“The NSW Government has made a record investment in the recruitment of nurses and midwives and I’m pleased to see eleven new recruits starting their careers in hospitals in the Northern Tablelands.”
