Mental Health Graduate Nurse Program

Start your mental health nursing career in a leading health service!

St Vincent's offers a unique and highly specialised Mental Health Graduate Nurse Program encompassing adult and aged mental health, in acute and community settings, with the opportunity for a long and fulfilling career in mental health care.

During your graduate year you will have the opportunity to learn and develop your skills in a supportive environment, working closely with your preceptor, and with regular group supervision.  

You will gain credits towards a post-graduate diploma in mental health nursing through the NEVIL Graduate Nurse Program, and have the opportunity to apply for a part-time Post-Graduate position the following year, where you will complete your graduate diploma.

At St Vincent's consumer-focused care is based on The Strengths Model—A recovery-oriented approach to mental health services (Rapp & Goscha, 2012).  We appreciate that individuals have their own unique strengths that can help them achieve their maximum wellness and potential.   You will be trained in the use of key recovery tools, and will be encouraged to develop your own creative recovery-orientated care strategies. 

Please note, these positions are part-time (0.8 EFT), to ensure work-life balance!
