- Mar 11 by whitey26Hey guys,
I also got my new grad at Rpa. I guess I'll be seeing you on the 30th! Best of luck finding a place to stay, I Think we are all in the same boat for now.
- Mar 29 by Mallory11Im getting so excited!! Starting my house hunt in Sydney next week!
Good luck with your final semester, you will rock it!!
Anyone know anything about annual leave during the program? I'm assuming it's two weeks after the first rotation then two weeks at the end of the program?
Also, anyone know anything about how easy it will be to swap shifts to have several days off in a row? My boyf lives in NZ and I'm trying to work out how often we can see each other with trips back and forth across the Tasman! Hopefully he's moving here later in the year though
Look forward to meeting you all!
- Mar 29 by MopplesIt generally depends on the ward, the num and the skill mix per shift. As for annual leave, the new grads at work tend to take a block of theirs towards the end.
Being on a 7 day rotating roster, we will accrue 6 weeks min. You get more depending on how many Sundays you work through the year, up to 7 weeks in total. If you go to the nsw health page, do a search for 'rates of pay' and it should bring up links to the full award.
