Nursing in Victoria

Nursing in Victoria
The state of Victoria in Australia has a population of approximately 5.8 million people, and includes Australia's second largest city, Melbourne.  The city of Melbourne is regularly ranked amongst the top 3 most liveable cities in the world, and the state of Victoria, despite being the second smallest state in Australia, offers an incredibly diverse range of professional and lifestyle opportunities for health professionals and nurses.

The health system in Victoria is organised into three metropolitan and five rural health regions.  Each of these regions consists of a number of health services.  These regions and links to the relevent government pages for more information are as follows:

Metropolitan Health Regions:

Rural Health Regions:
Each of the health services within these health regions makes independent decisions in relation to the recruitment and career paths for nurses within these organisations.

Victoria, and Melbourne in particular, offer world class tertiary hospital services, including The Royal Children's Hospital, The Alfred, and Monash Medical Centre as well as a number of outstanding primary care services.  As such, Victoria offers an incredibly diverse range of career settings for nurses to work and enjoy incredibly rewarding work experiences.

There are shortages of nurses in some fields of specialisation and in some regional areas in particular.

Nurses in Victoria fall under the national registration framework for nurses in Australia, and as such they must be registered to work as a nurse by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA)
