Application process

Epworth uses an online application system and the process depends on which intake period you are applying for. Please note the 2018 Registered Nurse Graduate Program at Epworth Geelong and Epworth Rehabilitation do not use the Computer Match system. Please see our vacancies page.

Applications open 29 May and close 21 July 2017. Ensure you read the required documents section for each program before you start your application.

We regret we are unable to offer students who are not Australian or New Zealand residents the opportunity to apply as our graduate nurse programs do not meet the immigration requirements for visa sponsorship.
