Frequently Asked Questions

We understand there is choice. We also understand the importance in YOU making the right choice.

To assist you, WorkPac Health and Social Care has developed some key responses to the most commonly covered areas of agency nursing.

A. You may have worked in other states or even be coming from overseas. As each facility, let alone state and country, differs slightly in their procedures we adhere to a set of minimum mandatory requirements, some are contractual, some are legal, but all are important.

These include but not limited to;

  • Orientation procedures prior to commencing shifts

  • Appearance, WorkPac Health and Social Care will provide you with a logo embroidered shirt for all shifts

  • Some facilities may require PPE (personal protection equipment) others may not

  • Shift length and commencement over weekends may vary as will the structure of pay within shifts at each facility

  • Timesheets may be directed to WorkPac or the client for signing

  • Allocation of ward may change once you commence your shift as an agency nurse

We aim to ensure you stay safe and enjoy your work whilst on shift.

  • Stay in touch - keep us informed of any changes and get to know the key ward staff and you will find yourself being requested time and time again.

A. WorkPac Health and Social Care follow the APHRA registration standards that define the requirements applicants must meet to be considered fit for practice as a registered nurse or speciality field such as a midwife.

A. Yes it would be ideal if you are able to provide your documentation in advance of your interview, or bring along details of current APHRA registration, right to work documentation, accreditations and certifications, work references and record of service.

A. Absolutely, we have several key mechanisms contained in our employee login area for managing timesheets for shifts, confirming availability for rosters and SMS notifications’ of changes or defined locations to support you.

A. It is highly unlikely that a nurse requiring support or unable to commit to a shift will not be able to work for us again. We recognise the importance of flexibility and that instances occur outside of normal control. We simply ask that you maintain communication with our Allocations team to ensure they have enough time to refill your shift and confirm your next availability.

A. Once we have verified all relevant documentation you will be set into our nurse pool based on key attributes you and your recruitment coordinator identify as being most suitable to your skills (preferential location and shift type will also be taken into account). From there you are eligible to be placed in a shift and our Allocations team will call on you for shift suitability and confirmation of acceptance.
