When you work R&R you have the opportunity to truly make a difference, by helping to improve the health and lives of Australians living in areas where they are limited by their geographic proximity to healthcare facilities. Above all, as a Remote Area Nurse (RAN) you’ll work with diverse cultures and be able to experience a very unique lifestyle in some of Australia’s most stunning places, such as Northern Queensland, Townsville, Port Hedland, Port Lincoln or Mackay (to name some!).
