About the program
Bachelor of Nursing students must complete a minimum of 800 hours of clinical placement throughout their course.
This program supports Bachelor of Nursing students with high-quality clinical placements in the care and support sector, including:
- aged care
- veterans’ care
- disability support.
Students in the program will be supported by a program specialist clinical facilitator. All nursing students and aged care workers are encouraged to access the Aged Care Knowledge Hub, which provides free resources to help students on placement and anyone with an interest in the aged care sector.
We have contracted five organisations to deliver this program nationally.
|A consortium with University of Canberra, University of Wollongong, Edith Cowan University and Curtin University
|ACT, NSW, WA
|Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association, APNA
|ACT, NSW, QLD, VIC, TAS, NT
|Brightwater Care Group
|Hunter Primary Care (Hunter New England and Central Coast Region)
Why this program is important
The Aged Care Nursing Clinical Placements Program will raise student awareness of the rewarding career opportunities in the care and support sector. This creates new opportunities for registered nurses to enter the care and support sector in the early stages of their career.
The program is open until December 2024.
