Barwon Health provides opportunities for nursing staff to complete the clinical component of Post Graduate courses in the following specialty areas:

Clinical Nurse Educators in each area are available to provide clinical support and clinical assessments to enable the nurse to achieve the requirements of their course of study. To complete the post graduate qualification it is essential that the student successfully achieves all clinical requirements.

Post graduate students at Barwon Health are employed to work in a part-time temporary position for 12 months (18 months for Midwifery).
