“Nurses are the backbone of the Australian health care system. Nursing is an extremely diverse and rewarding career with a number of entry pathways,” ACN CEO, Adjunct Professor Kylie Ward said.

“Do not miss this fantastic opportunity to engage with the nursing profession and connect with industry leaders here in WA. Come along with questions, an open mind and realise the endless possibilities that a nursing career offers,” Adjunct Professor Ward said.

Visitors can gain practical take-home advice and skills from a range of educational seminars covering CV and interview skills, rural and remote employment opportunities, choosing a career in mental health and graduate opportunities.

The ACN Nursing and Health Expo Perth 2017 is being hosted by the Australian College of Nursing and is proudly supported by the Nursing and Midwifery Office of WA Health.
