Tasmania, Australia’s island state, has four major public hospitals – Royal Hobart HospitalLaunceston General HospitalNorth West Regional Hospital and Mersey Community Hospital, along with a supporting network of rural hospitals and multi-purpose services.


These health care facilities serve every part of the state – but there’s a problem, because Tasmania is facing a shortage of qualified professional nurses and midwives. This means that there are plenty of permanent, fixed-term and casual vacancies for registered and enrolled nurses in all areas of Tasmania.


Working for Tasmania’s health service has many benefits. Here are some of the key positive features:


  • Tasmania’s statewide health care network provides the flexibility to work across the service and in different regions


  • Nurses are respected, valued and well rewarded and there’s a range of outstanding salary sacrifice and packaging arrangements available


  • Nursing staff can access excellent professional development allowances and scholarships for post-graduate study


  • Rural and remote allowances provide an additional 10 per cent for remote areas of Tasmania and an extra four per cent for the state’s rural areas



  • Tasmania offers an enviable lifestyle, exceptional people, modern workplace facilities and a clean, unpolluted environment
