Graduate Nurse Program

Want to take the next step in your mental health nursing career? Our Graduate Nurse Program might be just what you’re looking for.

As a graduate mental health nurse at Forensicare, you’ll be supported in your transition from student to Registered Nurse. Our Graduate Nurse Program will provide you with a supportive environment where you will:

  • Enhance your clinical and professional confidence and competence
  • Be given development opportunities to continue learning
  • Be given professional responsibilities and independence

Training & development

At Forensicare, we’re committed to your ongoing professional development and training. We want you to be the best you can be. To facilitate this, as a graduate nurse, you will be enrolled in your first year of a Postgraduate Diploma in Mental Health Nursing. You will also be given the opportunity to continue your postgraduate study, following the successful completion of your first year. Study leave will be provided to support your academic requirements, as well as plenty of advice and support from our expert team.

Nursing rotations

Graduate nurses at Forensicare will be rotated across a range of our service areas. You will work rostered shifts, including nights.
