20 Jan 2017

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).
