6.  Where can I find a nurse to work in my practice?

Once you have developed a position description for a nursing position appropriate to the needs of your practice, you need to advertise to attract the best candidate for the role. To do this, advertise as widely as possible within budget and use a variety of channels, such as:

  • Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association (APNA) career portal – https://www.apna.asn.au/profession/jobs
  • Commercial job sites: seek.com.au and adzuna.com.au (formerly mycareer.com.au), which are broadly popular, or nursing-specific sites such as nursingjobs.com.au
  • Newspapers: nurses seeking positions will often refer to the health recruitment section in major weekend and local papers
  • Primary health care organisations: Primary Health Networks, Medicare Locals, professional networks
  • Word of mouth.
