Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cadetship Program

St Vincent’s Private Hospital (SVPH) has an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nursing Cadetship.

We have been running Graduate Nurse Programs since 1989 as well as a successful TVET program for Assistants in Nursing for the past three years and will commence the second intake of our cadetship in 2013.

We are one of the leading tertiary level private hospitals located in the CBD and are recognised as an Associate Teaching Hospital of the University of New South Wales and University of Notre Dame.  We have affiliations with many NSW universities. SVPH has 276 beds, with approximately 20,000 admissions per annum.
