Looking for ICU Nursing jobs in Melbourne? We take a look at what every ICU nurse needs to consider with each role…
When it comes to finding the right ICU nursing position, it’s well worth taking the time to assess three key factors which are often easy to dismiss.
This is a pretty basic principle, but one that’s easy to get wrong. All ICU nursing positions require an element of adaptation, but accepting a job that doesn’t play to your skill set can be stressful. Knowing your own personality and who you work best with is also vital. Take an online personality test and identify your character traits, and be honest with yourself in terms of your skills and strengths.
The nature of ICU nursing means stress levels can be pretty high, and it’s important not to add to that with a long commute. If your commute is a slog, your mental health suffers, so try and stick to around a 30 minute distance between where you’re staying and your place of work.
Being able to strike that balance between working and also enjoying your spare time in Oz is priceless. Look for flexible contracts that will enable you to do this, and you’ll avoid the all too common burnout that comes from long working hours and too little time for yourself.
So in short, keep your commute short, your contracts flexible and be honest about your professional abilities – follow these three simple rules and you’ll be on the path to your dream placement.
