Graduate Nurses Working in different clinical settings

Hi,

I am keen to know from other Educators working in hospitals if there is a set percentage of new Graduate Nurses per total FTE  in each unit or is it variable?

We are currently reviewing our Graduate Program and looking at increasing our numbers of Graduate nurses

 


Kind regards

Hi Jaya

Our Nursing and Midwifery Managers determine our TPPP N&M numbers each year based on vacancies, ward activity, recruitment/retention etc. Each unit has a different number of Graduates but this is not necessarily determined by the size of their staff base or bed numbers.

 

If you would like any other information about our TPPP, please don't hesitate to contact me

In Victoria there is a clause in the EBA that requires there to be no more than 1/3 of staff per shift made up from the Graduate Nurse/EN grouping
