Combined Graduate / Midwifery Program – Registered Nurse

In addition to our Graduate Nurse Program, EGHS are also offering a collaborative Nursing and Midwifery Program for one newly Registered Nursing and Midwifery graduate.

Aim of Program

This program is an exciting opportunity for newly Registered Nursing and Midwifery graduates to complete a transition to practice year within regional and rural settings. The program is structured to enable rotations of graduates between participating services in order to provide a variety of both nursing and midwifery experiences. Clinical experience is complemented by study days and access to regional continuing education programs, simulation based learning and online learning. Clinical support staff are available in all services.
