Remote Area Nurse certification
A pioneering initiative aims to set a new benchmark for nurses and midwives aspiring to remote and isolated practice in Australia.
CRANAplus, the peak professional body for the remote health workforce, is developing a certification process designed to set a minimum standard for nurses and midwives interested in pursuing a career working remote.
CRANAplus CEO Christopher Cliffe says the RAN Certification Project will provide a framework for practitioners to demonstrate their practice against the nine professional standards, which serve as the foundation of remote practice.
Mr Cliffe says the standards and the certification process are designed to produce more reliable, consistent, high quality and accessible health care, delivered by suitably skilled, experienced and recognised remote area nurses (RANs).
