Rural Workforce Agencies

Did you know there is a not-for-profit network dedicated to helping people like you carve out a career in rural health?

Rural Workforce Agencies are the go-to guides for career advice and assistance for aspiring rural health professionals.

The NRHSN is an initiative of the Australian Government Department of Health, administered by the Consortium of Rural Workforce Agencies (RWAs). The NSW Rural Doctors Network is the RWA managing the NRHSN on behalf of the Consortium.

Each Australian State and the Northern Territory is served by a government-designated RWA that works to improve access to high-quality healthcare for people in remote, regional and rural Australia. RWAs do this through a range of programs, services and initiatives that attract, recruit, retain and support GPs, nurses and allied health professionals in rural and remote communities.
