THE Member for Coffs Harbour, Andrew Fraser, has announced that a total of 26 new nursing and midwifery graduates will be joining the Coffs Harbour Health Campus.

"The first 13 graduates will commence today, with another 13 joining the staff in late March," Mr Fraser said.

"More than 2000 new graduate nurses have accepted positions to start work across NSW public hospitals this year," Mr Fraser said.

"We now have 46,700 nurses and midwives working in NSW public hospitals.

"Prior to coming to government, the Coalition promised to provide an additional, 2475 nurses in NSW in our first term," Mr Fraser added.

"Under two years into our first term, we have exceeded that target, with more than 3000 extra nurses and midwives now working in our hospitals and the community, providing care to the people of NSW.

"About one quarter of this year's graduate nurses and midwives have taken up jobs in rural hospitals," Mr Fraser.

"We are indebted as a society to the dedication of nurses and midwives, who are at the very heart of our health system," the Minister for Health, Jillian Skinner said.

"We rely on their professionalism and their commitment to delivering the highest standards of patient care.

"I congratulate these graduates on joining their ranks.  I trust that today is the start of a long and fulfilling career for them all," Minister Skinner concluded.
