About YNA

Your Nursing Agency (YNA) is a 100% Australian owned and operated company, focused on providing the best level of support to nursing staff. The business is managed by an experienced team with over 50 years experience working in Australia’s leading nursing agencies. Our business was founded to improve on the services offered by other agencies and provide nursing staff with a caring and personal approach.

We place Registered Nurses, Enrolled Nurses and Personal Care Workers in metropolitan and rural healthcare settings, and at all times our objective is to support every aspect of healthcare staff’s careers and ensure a positive agency experience. Our enviable network of contacts means that we can find you the right opportunities to advance your career, gain new experience, or simply find a fresh, more rewarding environment in which to work.

We established YNA to bring together a team of experienced agency managers who wanted to offer our nurses and clients a better level of service. We decided that we wanted our staff to be a part of this team and so developed our nurse bonus scheme allowing our staff to share in the company’s profits each year. Our aim is to be the agency of choice for both nurses and clients and we will achieve this by providing excellent service and support. YNA is a panel supplier to the South Australian, Queensland and Victorian Governments and can provide work in sites across these states in all areas of nursing.

YNA has Australia’s only nurse co-operative bonus scheme where all of our nursing staff have an opportunity to receive a profit share with the company. This profit share scheme allows staff that work with YNA throughout the year to be recognised for their contribution and to share in any profits. This co-operative approach is the first of its kind in Australia. We understand that you and every member of our nursing staff that makes our agency great and we want to reward your efforts and recognise your importance through allocating a share of profits.


In June 2011 YNA acquired Adelaide nursing agency Health Management and Nursing Services Pty Ltd ‘HMNS’. HMNS was established in 1998 and is a leading agency in Adelaide. The team from HMNS have merged with our Adelaide team and we have been delighted to welcome the office and nursing staff to the YNA team.

At the time of this acquisition we established a Melbourne office to support the nursing staff. Our Melbourne based YNA team comprises experienced managers and allocations staff.
