Registered Nurse

Royal Australian Navy - Melbourne, VIC

Health, Medical & Pharmaceutical
Source: uWorkin


Your role:

You’ll start your career in Navy fully qualified in your profession but through Navy’s specialised training you’ll gain many more skills. The work you’ll do is rewarding, and will make a difference to the lives of the people who serve Australia.

As a Generalist, adult Medical/Surgical, Perioperative, Intensive Care or Emergency Nurse, you'll serve in a variety of well-equipped Defence facilities and regularly work alongside your Army and Air Force colleagues, in Australia and overseas. Navy Nurses are based across Australia and this role could see you work in any of these locations. If required, relocation assistance will be provided by Navy.

This role will enable you to use your skills and resolve to provide expert care in unique environments and with a large degree of autonomy in practice. When at home or on operations, you will provide primary health care, triage and specialist skills to Defence personnel. You may also have the opportunity to maintain clinical skills through employment in civilian hospitals (dependent on unit requirements).

Throughout your career, you will be taught leadership and management skills, enabling you to lead, manage and provide career guidance to junior personnel in your division.

This is a challenging role where you'll get to apply your practical and professional skill sets in a novel environment. You'll be supported by a tight-knit team, both at sea and ashore.

The Navy provides its Nurses opportunities for expansion of their skills into other specialised health areas.

Life in the Navy:

A career in the Navy is a challenging and highly rewarding working environment that comes with good work/life balance, competitive salary and skills for life. You can expect to feel a unique sense of accomplishment and pride from serving and protecting our country and helping to keep our vast coastlines safe.

Life in the Navy is anything but mundane. You’ll enjoy varied lifestyles, rewarding careers, opportunities to travel, and excellent social and fitness facilities, free medical and dental; all in a dynamic and fulfilling working environment.

Don’t worry, it’s not all life at sea—there’s more to the Navy than ships, submarines and helicopters. Some days, you might be exploring exciting new countries with your fellow crewmates. Other days, you could be based locally not too far from home.


Upon completion of your initial military and initial employment training, you’ll enjoy a competitive starting salary package from $84,586 including service and uniform allowances. You will also receive a Maritime Allowance when serving on ships.

In addition to your salary, you will receive generous superannuation, housing subsidies and free medical and dental care.
