Perioperative Nurse Program

Applications Closed for 2023 - submit your interest for 2024

St Andrew's Hospital launched it's Perioperative Nurse Program in 2023 which is designed for nurses who wish to hone their skills and specialise in scrub and scout.  This carefully designed program is relevant for either Registered Nurses (RN's) or Enrolled Nurses (EN's) who have at least 3 years acute clinical experience.

How does the program work?

This new Perioperative Nursing Program is an important part of our workforce strategy as we hire, train and keep the best in the business.  It ensures we employ the right nurses to add to our culture and help us provide the very best care and service for our patients.

We have designed the content and approach for the perioperative environment utilising competency-based tools developed by our Clinical Educators.  Our senior experienced educators (all 4 of them) will ensure that you receive ongoing support, education and professional development. 

We have a structured competency framework that gives you both the theoretical and practical knowledge to feel confident in the complex area of perioperative nursing.
