Job Opportunites for Nursing in Australia  
A Wealth of opportunity!

There are many opportunities available for Nurses throughout Australia. We specialise in placing nurses in regional, rural & remote facilities throughout Australia. We cover all states of Australia except the ACT. Generally speaking, the contract lengths we offer can be a couple of days through to 3 months (and potentially even longer).

Ad Hoc Agency Shifts in the local Mackay / Whitsunday Area

We are able to offer local casual work here in Mackay. Mackay local work may be on a shift by shift basis, or it may be a part-time or full-time contract, pending on the needs of the client.

Types of Ad Hoc Nursing work that may be available:

  • Aged Care Facilities
  • General Practice and Dental Services
  • Immunisation clinics
  • Drug testing for a variety of industries
  • Health Assessments
  • Nurse escorts for specialist appointments or private clients.
  • Island Resort work (RN / RAN).

There is no hard and fast rule to say how frequently our local facilities will require agency nurses. Local work cannot be guaranteed - so most of our local nurses already have permanent positions - whereby they can fit in extra ad hoc work with us on their days off.

Working casual shifts in different locations & settings allows you to choose the time, place and type of work. You let CQ Nurse know your availability and we'll do the rest. We place you in the areas where your skills will be valued. All local shifts are paid at 'agency rates' which is above the casual Public Hospital award rate, giving you more in your pocket.

CQ Nurse Divisions

CQ Nurse has three other complimentary divisions that may also require staff from time to time. These divisions include:
