Exciting News – Evolution Graduate Program

In collaboration, Highfield Healthcare and the Peter McVerry Trust, are NOW inviting applications for our new and innovative Evolution Graduate pilot Program which commences from March 2022 onwards. Recently qualified registered psychiatric/mental health nurses and 4th year students due to Graduate this year can apply.

We are partnering with each other to provide Graduates with a comprehensive 12-month program which will provide successful candidates with:

  • An opportunity to be part of a new and innovative program for Graduate Psychiatric Nurses
  • Opportunities to work across services and units in both organisations to better understand and experience the scope of services and care models. These will include acute, home-based treatment, specialist rehabilitation, detox & treatment services, stabilisation services and housing services
  • Opportunities for both personal and professional development delivered via formal learning plans, experiential learning, coaching, and mentoring
  • Pathway to permanent employment in either organisation at the end of the program
  • A certificate of participation and completion of the program – we are seeking formal accreditation for our program
