The table provided below is a guide to pay rates for registered nurses and enrolled nurses across Australia and at various career levels. It is however impossible to provide a comprehensive table of this nature which covers every possible nurse role across the country. Therefore it is important to emphasise that this is only a guide and that any nurse should check with their Human Resources contact or the relevant Australian Nursing & Midwifery Federation body for more specific information. This guide also does not take into consideration factors such as: working conditions, nurse to patient ratios, over-time allowance, salary packaging provisions, agency rates, nor any other allowances.
