Graduate Programs for International Nursing Graduates
WA’s GradConnect program is now open to onshore international nursing graduates following a successful campaign from the Guild Postgraduate Student Committee President Hameed Mohammad and Guild President Theodora Rohl who lobbied the State Government with the support of the Council of Australian Postgraduate Associations (CAPA); Professor Archie Clements, Pro-Vice-Chancellor Health Sciences; Professor Seth Kunin, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Curtin Global and Professor Phill Della Head of School – Nursing.
GradConnect provides employment opportunities for graduating nurses and midwives within the WA public health system and participating private hospitals.
Many onshore international nursing graduates have years of clinical experience in their home countries and opening up the GradConnect program to international nursing students upon graduation will help manage the nursing deficit in WA and assist with the challenge of managing the COVID-19 pandemic.
This is a fantastic outcome for Curtin’s Nursing students and graduates.
