Clinical Placements for Nursing Students / Registered Nurses

Royal Adelaide Hospital provides local and interstate nursing students clinical placement opportunities for undergraduate, postgraduate and enrolled nursing within a number of clinical speciality areas.

The request for a clinical placement  must only be received direct from the Education provider to the Department Of Health Central booking.

Please contact : 08 8161 8206

Students are NOT permitted to contact the hospital directly with a specific request.

Clinical placements can be provided throughout our many specialty areas and the length of placement is dependent on the Education provider and the speciality areas

The placements maintain a focus that is relevant and reflective of current clinical practice and research. They also provide nurses with an opportunity to interact with experts in the clinical field, to develop an understanding of advanced clinical interventions, and link evidence based theory to their practice.
