Important Announcements

Are you applying for a 2018 Graduate Year at Monash Health?

Applications are closing on Friday 21st July 2017 for all 2018 Monash Health Graduate Nurse/Midwife Programs.

Please see below some last minute FAQs to assist in submitting applications via the Monash Health e-recruit system.

I am still waiting for my transcript with results from Semester 1, 2017. Can I submit it after applications close?

Yes. You must submit your application prior to the closing date and can do so without a transcript. Once you receive your up to date transcript you can e-mail this to us at gnp@monashhealth.org.

Do I have to submit a cover letter?

No, we do not require you to submit a cover letter as part of your application for 2018 Graduate Nurse/Midwife Programs at Monash Health. As part of your application you only need to submit the following:

1. A CV using the Monash Health Graduate Program CV template
2. Your 2 most recent clinical appraisals (certified)
3. A complete Monash Health Fit2Work form and the necessary 100 points of certified identification
4. A certified copy of your academic transcript

My transcript/appraisals are online and are automatically certified by the university system. Is it ok for me to submit these as part of my application?

Yes. We accept transcripts and appraisals that have been digitally certified by the education provider. You do not need to get these re-certified.

I am having trouble uploading all of my documents into the system. What should I do?

Ideally, you should collate your clinical appraisals and transcript all into one file and upload this under ‘Other Documents’. If you still need more space for files you can upload any document under the ‘Photo’ field. If you are still having difficulty uploading all of your documents in the provided fields, you can submit your application and then e-mail the outstanding documents to gnp@monashhealth.org.

I have clicked the icon to send reference forms out but the system now shows that my references are ‘Incomplete’. Can I still submit my application?

Yes. Do not delay submitting your application to wait for references to complete. Your referees will still be able to complete the online reference form and return this after the application closing date. 

If you having any further questions about applications please don’t hesitate to contact our Graduate Team on 9594 7732 or via gnp@monashhealth.org

Best of luck with your Graduate applications!

What is life like as a Monash Health graduate?

 

PHOTO1

“I am currently completing my first rotation at Casey Hospital and feel so welcome in my ward. I have the support of my clinical educators and they visit almost every shift. The ward staff are friendly and supportive which I feel is very valuable to me as a Grad Nurse.” – Medhawini Edirisinghe, 2017 Monash Health Graduate Nurse.

PHOTO2

“My first 2 months at Monash Medical Centre have been nothing but enjoyable. I’ve felt challenged & have had to work really hard, but support is easy to access. I really feel like every shift I grow as a nurse and my practice is always getting better. I’d recommend the Graduate Nurse Program at Monash to everyone!” – Jaimee Abbott, 2017 Monash Health Graduate Nurse.

“I’ve gained experience – and lots of it! I feel really well grounded now that I’m nearing the end of my graduate year. I’ve not only developed my midwifery skills and knowledge but have learnt about myself as a budding practitioner. It has been a very valuable experience which I am so happy to have done!” – Kelly Maree Maughan, Monash Health June 2016 Graduate Midwife.

Claire C

“I really enjoyed having a preceptor. We would catch up out of work for a coffee and debrief. It was also really comforting that we always had access to our educators through their pagers.” – Claire Carew, 2016 Monash Health Graduate Midwife.

“In mental health, we have an intense orientation period and study days. That support is so helpful and useful - really necessary for transitioning into the mental health environment.” – Stephanie Verstanding, Monash Health 2016 Mental Health Graduate Nurse.
