Becoming a remote area nurse: essential knowledge
On professional and personal preparation, building a sustainable career, and transitioning to remote health practice.
This reflective module has been developed for those nurses and midwives interested in working in the remote and isolated areas of Australia and its Territories, particularly:
- Nursing and midwifery students
- Nurses and midwives at any career stage considering transitioning to rural or remote area practice
- Nurses and midwives considering or undertaking short-term agency contracts in rural or remote areas.
It challenges common assumptions about remote area nursing, introduces helpful programs and pathways, and provides the essential knowledge required to thrive in remote health practice.
