Our Program

Do you want to be part of an amazing network of hospitals, with access to a world-class medical research institute and clinical simulation and education facilities?

Mater's Graduate Programs for Registered Nurses and Midwives are designed to assist graduates with the transition from study into nursing.  The programs allow Mater's graduates to work within a supportive learning environment to provide exceptional care to patients. 

We offer a range of programs for newly qualified nurses and midwives working across Mater's hospitals at South Brisbane, Redland and Springfield. 

Our programs offer the opportunity for you to learn on the job in a hospital as you transition from academic learning to professional practice.  Each of our programs run for 12 months and cater for those who have already identified their nursing speciality and those who are wanting more experience in a range of clinical areas before deciding on a speciality.

We offer a range of options because your career is yours to decide.
