You could be a Registered Nurse anywhere in the world. But working on the West Coast, you’ll understand the impact you make every day.

  • Per­ma­nent Full-time and Part Time – Mul­ti­ple Positions
  • Tas­man­ian Health Ser­vice – West Coast Dis­trict Hospital

To be Tas­man­ian is to val­ue qual­i­ty over quan­ti­ty. We cre­ate, pre­serve, and pro­tect the unusu­al. With qui­et con­fi­dence, with pas­sion and per­se­ver­ance, we pur­sue the extraordinary. 

It’s an excit­ing and reward­ing place to work and you will make a valu­able con­tri­bu­tion to a small com­mu­ni­ty while enjoy­ing the lifestyle of a rugged and remote land­scape. Our remote­ness helps dri­ve a cul­ture of inven­tion and human con­nec­tion, which feels both old fash­ioned and… like the only future worth pur­su­ing. Here you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to breath-tak­ing coast­lines, Nation­al Parks or award-win­ning fresh pro­duce – all right on your doorstep. Whether you love moun­tain bike rid­ing, bush walk­ing or explor­ing his­to­ry, the West Coast offers so many amaz­ing experiences.

Here, you are encour­aged to be your authen­tic self, to pur­sue your pas­sions, and to bring your own unique char­ac­ter­is­tics into our team. 

We are small enough in Tas­ma­nia for you to shape and influ­ence your work and make a real dif­fer­ence every day. Yet we are big enough for you to feel part of some­thing impor­tant, some­where you can belong and be sur­round­ed by diver­si­ty, inno­va­tion, and friend­ships. We’ll look after you from the very begin­ning, ensure you are ful­ly induct­ed and wel­comed into our team and culture.
