Closing Date: 2 August 2024

Job Description:

Street to Home provides support to people who are experiencing chronic homelessness to move into and sustain long term housing through a Housing First approach. People experiencing homelessness experience high rates of chronic illness, mental health, and substance use issues.  Critical to supporting a Housing First approach is the integration of primary health care services that are effective, efficient and community orientated to those experiencing homelessness or are vulnerably housed.

The Registered Nurse will be employed by Micah Projects to work as part of a multidisciplinary team within Street to Home in an outreach capacity to provide direct nursing care, create pathways to address the social determinants of health and to overcome barriers to healthcare for people with complex health and social issues across Brisbane. As a registered nurse you will work alongside Street to Home support and advocacy staff to provide integrated health, housing and social support services to people in public space, parks, food vans, boarding houses and public housing. The After-Hours Nurses operate seven days per week requiring roster flexibility across the seven days.

This is a fixed term part time employment opportunity with conditions and salary at Level 5 of the QLD Nurses and Midwives EB11 Agreement.

To be considered for this role you will need current registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) as a Registered Nurse along with a minimum of 2 years of experience working at an advanced level of practice, in community health, primary care, or a similar setting.


You will have demonstrated skills such as strong clinical assessment and diagnostic skills, wound care, trauma informed care and delivering care in a way that addresses the social determinants of health.


An interest in delivering care in community/primary health nursing as well as working with individuals who have addiction/mental health illness, would also be considered favourably.
