Tailored to remote practice

CRANAplus courses are tailored to the unique circumstances of rural and remote health. They consider factors such as lack of resources and distance from support, and focus on the complications and challenges faced in remote Australia. Our learning opportunities provide the highest level of preparedness, contribute to professional development and broaden your remote nursing skill set. Our face-to-face courses have an interactive and practical focus, allowing participants to practise skills at hands-on skills stations with expert oversight.

Developed and delivered by professionals

Our courses are designed and maintained by subject matter experts, utilising the evi­dence-based improve­ment strate­gies pro­vid­ed by the Nation­al Safe­ty and Qual­i­ty Health Ser­vice (NSQHS) Stan­dards to improve the qual­i­ty of health ser­vice pro­vi­sion in remote, rur­al and iso­lat­ed practice. They are delivered by vol­un­teer facil­i­ta­tors, high­ly skilled and expe­ri­enced pro­fes­sion­als who under­stand the chal­lenges of working in remote and iso­lat­ed areas. We'd love to hear from you if you're interested in volunteering.
