The Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association (APNA) is calling for expressions of interest from primary health care nurses for two upcoming programs.
APNA Transition to Practice Program (TPP)
Trying to find your feet in primary health care or want to try your hand at mentoring nurses new to primary health care?
This program will help you grow your skills, knowledge and confidence and set you up in your career. The 12-month program will support the transitioning nurse through tailored CPD, mentorship and support in primary health care settings such as (but not limited to) general practice, Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander health care and community health.
Applications are now open. For more information and to apply visit apna.asn.au/transitiontopractice.
Building Nurse Capacity (BNC)
Are you looking to take the next step in your career? Want to learn new skills and knowledge so you can deliver a new model of care?
The BNC project will focus on the development of nurse-led (team-based) models of care that meet local population health needs and contribute to building the capacity of the healthcare team. Grant funding and APNA support will be provided to successful applicants. It will help you promote close collaboration between nurses and health practitioners, as well as the primary health care sector, health leaders, organisations and consumers, thanks to the team-based care approach.
Applications are now open. For more information and to apply visit apna.asn.au/nursing-tools/nurse-clinics/buildingnursecapacity.
