Careers at AAON

These foundational principles are reinforced when you study, research, or teach at AAON.

Our mission is to mentor the next generation to lead nursing in Australia and around the world. As an educational institution, we take great pride as pioneers in our industry.

Maintaining and passing down the traditions of the profession whilst being early adopters of new technology, skills, and techniques has allowed us to re-invent the way we train. Our facilities reflect this notion, as we have designed them for this purpose.

AAON offers suitable candidates competitive remuneration packages, a range of research opportunities, professional development, and exchange programs. As an independent self-funded research and teaching organisation, AAON is free from the limitations that are common in large publicly funded bodies. This offers our academics greater flexibility. Several employment opportunities exist within AAON. If you are interested in any of the positions below AAON email your CV and covering letter to info@aaon.edu.au.
