Are you a reg­is­tered nurse tran­si­tion­ing to remote prac­tice or a rur­al reg­is­tered nurse with a plan to do so?

Rur­al and new-to-remote RNs are encour­aged to apply for the 2022 CRANAplus Remote Area Nurs­ing Path­way Program. 

The nine-month pro­gram com­mences in June 2022 and is present­ly avail­able to recip­i­ents of the Remote Area Nurs­ing Path­way Pro­gram Grant. Grant appli­ca­tions are now open.

The pro­gram builds clin­i­cal skills, resilience, and cul­tur­al safe­ty. It pro­vides a path­way to a sus­tain­able remote nurs­ing career, increas­ing employ­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties and paving the way for life­long learn­ing and pro­fes­sion­al development.

What does the pro­gram include?

The pro­gram can be com­plet­ed part-time and in con­junc­tion with your present employ­ment. It is facil­i­tat­ed by CRANAplus staff. The pro­gram covers:

  • A CRANAplus Remote Emer­gency Care course.
  • A CRANAplus Mater­ni­ty Emer­gency Care course.
  • The CRANAplus Online Clin­i­cal Assess­ment Suite.
  • A range of webi­na­rs fea­tur­ing guest speak­ers, designed to sup­port your pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment and pre­pared­ness for expand­ing your scope of practice.
  • Resilience work­shops & pro­fes­sion­al reflec­tion activities.
  • Cul­tur­al safe­ty pro­fes­sion­al development.

You will receive cer­tifi­cates on com­ple­tion of each course and on com­ple­tion of the pro­gram, which can be used in your con­tin­u­ing pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment portfolio.

What does it cost?

Thanks to the sup­port of the Nurs­es Memo­r­i­al Foun­da­tion of South Aus­tralia, CRANAplus will waive course fees for suc­cess­ful grant recipients.

A $500 bur­sary will be pro­vid­ed for each face-to-face course to assist with trav­el and accom­mo­da­tion costs.

Only CRANAplus Mem­bers are eli­gi­ble to apply, mean­ing full mem­ber­ship will need to be pur­chased if you are not a mem­ber already.

How do I apply?

To be eli­gi­ble for this grant, you must be a reg­is­tered nurse and a CRANAplus mem­ber cur­rent­ly employed in a rur­al or remote set­ting. Click here to become a mem­ber.
