FSFHG Nursing Transition Program for graduate nurses and midwives

The Fiona Stanley and Fremantle Hospitals Group (FSFHG) Nursing Transition (NurTr) Program supports graduates to achieve their personal and professional goals as they transition from student to registered nurse or midwife.

Our clinical areas support new graduates by ensuring realistic workloads and providing supervision, instruction and guidance as required.

The 12-month program at Fiona Stanley Hospital (FSH) or Fremantle Hospital (FH) provides:

  • promotion of a culture that values nurses and midwives, their contribution to client care and service delivery, and recognises the role of the graduate in the healthcare team
