Advocating for Defence families

Your Nursing Agency (YNA)

We are pleased to announce that YNA is now recognised as a Defence Partner Friendly Employer

With Defence Families of Australia, YNA is a preferred employer of healthcare industry professionals.

Healthcare industry workers including Registered Nurses, Enrolled Nurses, Assistants in Nursing, Allied Health Professionals, Disability Support Workers, Personal Care Workers, Personal Care Assistants and Patient Services Assistants are part of the DNA at YNA! 

Many of our operations, recruitment, and management team members are rich in knowledge and experience being clinical professionals who have worked across the private and public healthcare sector in Australia themselves.

We understand what it takes to be a Defence Partner and we’re passionate about helping families of the Australian Defence Force (ADF). Our team include veterans and former military members, as well as partners and families of current and former serving Defence members – we genuinely understand.

YNA are a panelled and preferred provider with nearly 50 years’ experience in providing employment for our highly skilled staff into government and private – acute, aged care, disability and veterans residential, community and homecare settings.

Our objective is to support you in every aspect of your career and provide security in work as you move with your ADF spouse or partner and family across the country. 

This is a new initiative that, together with Defence Families of Australia, is being progressively rolled out across Australia. As a spouse, partner, and family of a serving ADF member – we can offer you better levels of stability of employment and choice of work sites.

YNA’s dedicated Defence Families Team of recruitment and operations specialists looks forward to hearing from you. Call 1300 YNA DEF (1300 962 333) or email
