Tasmania is in desperate need of a nursing and midwifery workforce plan to keep senior staff in the state, the nurses union says.

Neroli Ellis from the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation told ABC Radio Hobart nursing recruitment agencies were increasingly looking overseas for staff in places like New Zealand.



She said job ads were not attracting enough experienced nurses and a state job plan and more nursing educators were needed to ease senior staff shortages.

"When we see jobs being advertised now we get new graduates applying for those jobs but rarely now we're seeing any nurses applying with required experience," she said.

"And, of course, on every shift you need some senior nurses and some junior nurses to make sure you've got safe patient care."

Ms Ellis said the average age of Tasmanian nurses was 50 and succession planning was needed.

Ms Ellis said staff shortages meant nurses were doing double shifts in intensive care, mental health and midwifery and that nurses needed to be encouraged nurses to become more highly qualified to work in these areas.
