How Affinity Nurses Spent 2021

Exploring natural wonders 

No matter where you are in Aus, there is guaranteed to be nature to explore! Many Affinity Nurses have enjoyed hiking in the Cairns Tablelands, strolling through flower fields in Tasmania, and soaking in the coastline across the country.  

If you prefer something a bit calmer, RN Richard has kept busy gardening while on contract in Tennant Creek. 

“I have a vegetable garden growing, beans and tomatoes are currently being harvested and the carrots and beetroot are not far off!”

Connecting with fellow nurses 

One of the best parts of travel nursing is the incredible people that you meet along the way. RN Sarah, on placement in QLD and WA over 2021, shares her thoughts: 

lived with the most fabulous nurses, and we just had so much fun! I’ve met some absolutely wonderful people who will be friends for life.”


Exciting new experiences 

New workplaces mean new adventures! Nurses like RN Kristy have ventured in Tasmania, enjoying a hot air balloon ride over the calm scenery. A beautiful way to wind down after a long shift or enjoy the weekend with.  

Western Australia is also a great place to explore from above, with scenic helicopter tours or light aircrafts taking you to your next contract. Do you prefer the sea over heights? RN Maddie explored Kununurra, WA, via canoe!

Helping communities nationwide 

We’d like to thank you for your continued dedication to helping others. The impacts of COVID-19 mean travel nurses are needed now more than ever, and our Affinity Nurses sure have risen to the occasion! Well done to all.
