5 reasons to give Rural and Remote Nursing a try!

As a registered nurse myself, I wish someone had told me about the places I could go, communities I could help and clinical expertise and knowledge I could gain working in Rural and Remote areas when I was starting out! But as a Clinical R&R Consultant, I now get to share in the journeys and experiences of a team of incredible R&R nurses who travel the country and work in communities as far from the local Maccas as you could imagine.

Why Rural and Remote Nursing?

As Agency Nurses, we thrive on the different ‚ new locations, new wards and new hospitals from one day to the next. The beauty of R&R is that you can travel all across our great country, continue to have reliable work and build strong relationships with people who rely on you to care for them and educate them to promote and maintain their health, and remain in their own communities.

What’s it like taking on your first R&R role?

It really isn’t as hard as you think to take the leap! Like any new job, the first contract is always the scariest, but once you get the unknown out of the way, you will be driving the great adventure that is your Rural and Remote nursing career!
