What is life like as a Monash Health graduate?



“I am currently completing my first rotation at Casey Hospital and feel so welcome in my ward. I have the support of my clinical educators and they visit almost every shift. The ward staff are friendly and supportive which I feel is very valuable to me as a Grad Nurse.” – Medhawini Edirisinghe, 2017 Monash Health Graduate Nurse.


“My first 2 months at Monash Medical Centre have been nothing but enjoyable. I’ve felt challenged & have had to work really hard, but support is easy to access. I really feel like every shift I grow as a nurse and my practice is always getting better. I’d recommend the Graduate Nurse Program at Monash to everyone!” – Jaimee Abbott, 2017 Monash Health Graduate Nurse.


“I’ve gained experience – and lots of it! I feel really well grounded now that I’m nearing the end of my graduate year. I’ve not only developed my midwifery skills and knowledge but have learnt about myself as a budding practitioner. It has been a very valuable experience which I am so happy to have done!” – Kelly Maree Maughan, Monash Health June 2016 Graduate Midwife.

Claire C

“I really enjoyed having a preceptor. We would catch up out of work for a coffee and debrief. It was also really comforting that we always had access to our educators through their pagers.” – Claire Carew, 2016 Monash Health Graduate Midwife.


“In mental health, we have an intense orientation period and study days. That support is so helpful and useful - really necessary for transitioning into the mental health environment.” – Stephanie Verstanding, Monash Health 2016 Mental Health Graduate Nurse.
