Nurse of the Quarter – Brooke McConnell

Hi, I’m Brooke McConnell. I have been a Registered Nurse for 5 years and Registered Midwife for 3 years. I call home Bathurst, NSW but since graduating I have been able to move around with work, I’m currently based in Geraldton, WA and loving it. I have had contracts with Curis Recruitment for over a year now and it has been great.

What have you enjoyed most about working in your current contract?

As I trained in a larger tertiary hospital, I enjoy the variety of work associated working in a rural hospital setting and the continuation of care.  E.g., Being the primary midwife caring for a woman in labour/birth and attending postnatal cares while in hospital.

What have you enjoyed most about working with Curis Recruitment?

Good communication takes the stress out of organising contracts and accommodation if needed.

What would your advice be to someone who is sitting on the fence about contract work?

It is a great way to travel and work while upskilling in a supported environment as the agency acknowledges previous experience and finds location best suited for your level of experience.

Joining an agency?

Definitely recommend Curis recruitment for the great communication with the personalised touch (they even sent you birthday cards!).
