Courses for January-June 2023 are now available on our website.

Members can book immediately. Non-members from midday September 30.

CRANAplus mem­ber­ship is open to health pro­fes­sion­als, care providers, man­agers, aca­d­e­mics, edu­ca­tors, stu­dents and those who are no longer a part of the paid health work­force but have a con­tin­ued inter­est in the remote or iso­lat­ed health sector.

Peo­ple who do not meet this cri­te­ria but who are inter­est­ed in sup­port­ing CRANAplus can join as Asso­ciate Mem­bers. Asso­ciate Mem­bers have the same ben­e­fits as Full Mem­bers but do not have vot­ing rights and are not enti­tled to join the Board of Management.

By join­ing the CRANAplus com­mu­ni­ty, you’re sup­port­ing our advo­ca­cy, pro­fes­sion­al devel­op­ment, men­tal health, and edu­ca­tion work. Your deci­sion con­tributes to the health of remote pop­u­la­tions and reflects sol­i­dar­i­ty with your peers. Thank you!
