Working and domestic environments you will encounter in Timor-Leste are far removed from those most nurses come to expect in Australia, and candidates must be resilient and patient. Our International Health nurses must be prepared to go the extra distance to ensure support for the development of nursing practices in a sustainable way.
The Nursing Development Program operated by St John of God Health Care is part of a wider commitment to Timor-Leste which includes a longterm Pathology Development Program and primary health care projects in remote communities. Our work in Timor-Leste has been recognised by the Ministry of Health as amongst the most successful by a non-government agency since the country’s independence.
