GRADUATE NURSE 2022 (Multiple Positions Available)

GRADUATE REGISTERED NURSE PROGRAMME 2022

Casterton Memorial Hospital is a small rural health service which provides acute care, primary care, aged care and allied health services to the community of Casterton.

PROGRAM STRUCTURE

The Graduate Nurse program is for newly graduated registered nurses and comprises of two intakes each year (January and April) with a total of 4 graduates.

The length of the course is 52 working weeks at 8 shifts per fortnight (64 hours/fortnight).

A week of annual leave is designated to each graduate in the middle of the program which extends the period to 53 weeks in total. Any additional leave taken due to extenuating circumstances (personal etc) during the course will need to be made up on completion of the course.

The program consists of both a theoretical and practical component both of which have been developed in response to the specific learning needs of graduate nurses.

OBJECTIVES                                                 

  • Provide an opportunity for the graduate nurse to consolidate and integrate nursing knowledge into practice.
  • Facilitate reflective practice developing a clinical judgement skill set.
  • Support the graduate nurse to progressively fulfil the contemporary role of a Division 1 Registered Nurse, while maintaining the optimal work/life balance.
  • Promote the personal and professional development of the graduate nurse.

CLINICAL

The clinical component includes rotations that are around five months in length. Rotations include:

Acute: This placement provides a sound clinical foundation on which to develop clinical skills and knowledge.

Glenelg House (Aged care facility): This rotation enables the graduate to develop clinical leadership, clinical judgement, physical assessment, medication management and communication skills within a person-centred care model.

Surgical /Emergency: During the year, a three week clinical placement in Horsham includes two weeks in the surgical unit and one week in emergency care.

 

THEORETICAL

The theoretical component comprises of a five day orientation block in Horsham at Wimmera Health at the commencement of the program and six single study days throughout the year. The study day’s address the identified clinical needs of the graduate nurse. This format allows CMH graduates to integrate with other graduate nurses from across the region.

All graduates are provided three orientation days to CMH on commencement and another day when they transition to their other clinical area.

During the course of the year you will be required to work in a team of four in undertaking a minor research project specific to your workplace. More detail will be provided to successful graduates on employment.

ASSESSMENT

Graduates are encouraged clinically through personal and professional development plans which are reviewed and updated throughout the programme.

CLINICAL SUPPORT

Program Co-ordinators/CMH Education Officer: Facilitate the delivery and co-ordination of the program, facilitate clinical support for graduate nurses and assists the graduate to acquire skills and knowledge in a supported environment.

Preceptors: The graduate nurse is allocated a preceptor for the duration of the course.

Unit Managers: Monitor the progress of the graduate nurse during the clinical placement and offers support to the graduate when required.

Group Debriefing Sessions: Group debriefing sessions are held to provide a forum for the graduate nurse to discuss any issues relating to any aspect of the program.
