Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cadetship Program



The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cadetship Program is being run by St Vincent's Private Hospital (SVPH). SVPH is a recognised associate teaching hospital of University of New South Wales (NSW) and the University of Notre Dame, with affiliations with many NSW universities. The program is partially funded by the Department of Premier and Cabinet. The program can be completed at any recognised university while studying a Bachelor of Nursing degree which can normally be completed in three years of fulltime study.

The student will receive $600 each fortnight within university semesters and a $1,000 book allowance. The student will need to work at SVPH over the three year period for a minimum of 60 days each year, usually working one or two days a week. Pay will be at the Assistant in Nursing rate as per SVPH hospital pay scales.

SVPH provides a very supportive nurse education department and a professional and friendly workplace. SVPH hopes the nursing student will link in with the Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses and Midwives (CATSINaM) Mentoring Program.
