Start your rural & remote nursing adventure here.

We are Australian owned

When you work for Alliance, you’re working for a 100% Australian owned and for-purpose company. This means that any profits we make go into initiatives to support Australian communities.

By nurses, for nurses

We’re here for nurses and healthcare professionals. It’s all we do. We know you go over and above the call of duty. We do the same for you. Trust us to help you find the role, the adventure, you want.

No rural & remote experience? No problem

Never done anything like this? Don’t worry. We work with you to build your experience and confidence. Start off in a regional position. Then rural with support. Then remote. We’re with you every step of the way.

Roles as diverse as Australia

From hospitals to bush clinics. Maternity to aged care. From four weeks to three months. The options are as wide and varied as this amazing land. Why not join us for experiences and people you will never forget.

Same, same but different

Tired of turning up to the same hospital or medical facility day after day? Want to broaden your professional experiences? With us, you could be delivering a baby in the morning. And dealing with a heart attack in the afternoon.

A REAL-LIFE GLIMPSE INTO RURAL & REMOTE NURSING.

See and hear what it’s really like to be a rural or remote nurse on contract across Australia. Watch out for a few surprises!

This webinar was recorded in 2021 when we were still operating as CQ Nurse. 

You've got questions? We've got answers.

What kind of contracts do you offer?

The options are wide and varied, both long and short term. Generally, they range from 4 to 12 weeks. The more flexible and open you can be, the more contract choices and options you will see. Once we’ve seen your CV, we can advise you on where it would be best to place you.

Do I need to be vaccinated?

Yes. Usually, facilities require nurses to have been vaccinated against Hepatitis B, Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Varicella and Measles, Mumps and Rubella (if born after 1966). If you can’t have one of these due to an allergic reaction, facilities will generally accept a signed letter from your doctor stating as such.

The difference: agency vs placement rates?

Agency rates mean you are paid by us each week. Placement rates mean you are paid directly by the facility you’re working for. While this is generally less than agency rates, you may have the benefit of sick leave, annual leave and rostered days off. We will always let you know what your rates and options are before you decide whether to take the position.

Work and travel partner, family or pet?

That will depend on the specific role or position. Most facilities offer single-person accommodation. If you need more space (for family, loved ones or pets) you may have to pay for that yourself. You’ll also have to cover their travel expenses. One option is to travel with a caravan or in a campervan. Some facilities will even allow you to park onsite.

Australia wide agency network

Built by nurses, for nurses. Our network brings together a combined 140 years’ experience. We’re right across Australia: from the city to the bush.
