The Department of Corrections employs 250 Nurses who work collaboratively with Doctors, Allied Health staff and custody personnel. We’re united by our goal of making a positive difference in the lives of offenders, their families and the community.

Nursing at Corrections offers many unique opportunities to develop and practise your skills in a wide range of clinical areas. On any given day Nurses working in our prison health centres provide a full range of primary health care services.

Nurses assess and manage people with a variety of health issues, challenging physical and mental health problems, substance abuse related issues, as well as responding to emergencies and providing health education.

  • Recent experience in primary or secondary health care nursing
  • A broad range of post-graduate clinical experience
  • The ability to assess and respond to an emergency situation
  • The motivation to continue learning and developing professionally
  • A non-judgemental approach
  • Experience in triage (desirable).

Shifts include weekend work, but no night shifts, as there is an on-call triage system in place overnight.

If you think you have what it takes to make a positive change, then we’d like to hear from you.
