Why your nursing course can benefit from a fellowship

Did you know that jobs grew strongly for enrolled and registered nurses over the past five years, and are expected to continue growing over the next five years? *

Fellowships are a great, practical way for learners to gain work experience and enter the nursing industry while they study.

We run fellowships with Epworth Healthcare; St Vincent’s Private Hospital; Healthscope Holmesglen; Mulgrave Private Hospital and Ramsay Healthcare. Fellowships help learners experience work right across the healthcare industry for greater career insights.

What do you do during a nursing fellowship?

Nursing fellowships are designed to give learners that little bit extra knowledge. They’re an opportunity for you to see how the skills you’ve learned in our training facilities are applied in a real healthcare environment.

For example, you may complete extra simulation sessions while on placement. A fellowship may even give you the chance to complete the whole patient journey, from admission to pre-op; to theatre and recovery; to ICU and post-op ward and discharge.

What are the advantages of a fellowship?

A fellowship is a way to guarantee an interview for a graduate program, and may lead to potential part-time work as a patient care assistant or enrolled nurse while you’re a learner.

Completing a placement with the one provider will also give you time to grow your confidence. You’ll become familiar with your working environment and the placement staff will get to know your capabilities.

What are the entry requirements and how are nursing learners selected?

Fellowships are open to all nursing learners. You will need to submit an application and resume with the particular hospital. Selection will then be completed by venue clinical staff, or sometimes by Holmesglen, at the venue’s request.
