About Us...


Calvary Public Hospital Bruce (CPHB) is a 265 bed multi-discipline, modern healthcare facility serving the ACT community. At CPHB, our patients and their families expect a highly skilled, compassionate and dedicated workforce. Calvary staff pride themselves on ‘being for others’. The patient journey is at the centre of Calvary’s philosophy within our models of care.


The CPHB 2018 Graduate Enrolled Nurse (EN) Program is now open and accepting applications. We wish to hear from those EN’s who are keen to pursue a distinguished and rewarding career at CPHB.


About the Program...


Our EN Graduate Program has been designed to develop you into a competent and confident EN, to facilitate professional adjustment to the workforce and to develop a commitment to a career in nursing. The program will help you to develop assessment and critical thinking skills required to effectively nurse patients with varying conditions and during the program you will rotate through two clinical areas (your preferences will be taken into consideration).


You will be provided with:

- Access to a team of educators, preceptors and clinical development nurses.

- Fortnightly clinical workshops

- 2 graduate study days

- Supernumerary days on each rotation 


Our aim is to provide a comprehensive program that facilitates the development of the skills and knowledge required to work not only in specialised clinical settings but also in the broader clinical environment.


About You...


We are seeking enthusiastic new graduates that embody our mission of ‘being for others’ with a positive solutions focused attitude and a willingness to learn.
