PUBLIC SECTOR NURSES' SALARY DATA.

This part of Nurses and Midwives' Paycheck provides nurses' wage rates for each state and territory effective from the dates provided in the table that follows. The salary data provides weekly rates of pay for each classification relevant to the public sector in the particular state or territory.

The rates of pay are derived from the most recent public sector nurses' agreements registered by the Fair Work Commission or relevant state industrial authority.

It should be noted that the rates of pay are minimum weekly rates only and that awards and agreements provide for a range of additional benefits including various allowances and penalty rates that may increase a nurse's remuneration.

The commencement date for the rates of pay between the states or territories may differ. Please refer to the table on pages 22 and 23 for details.

Classifications and definitions may also vary across the states and territories. Further information should be obtained from the relevant award or agreement, a copy of which may be obtained from the following websites:
