By supporting students today, we work towards a strong, connected remote health workforce tomorrow.
CRANAplus prides itself on its longstanding tradition of actively supporting students. By supporting students today, we play our role in encouraging remote healthcare and remote nursing as a career choice and ensuring a strong, connected remote health workforce in the future.
One aspect of this has been through our involvement with the National Rural Health Student’s Network (NRHSN) and at State and Territory level with various university rural health clubs. In partnership with NRHSN, we support new graduates to consider a career in remote practice, by:
Advocating for and promoting the availability of remote placements for undergraduates with both remote health services and the universities.
Facilitating the LINKS Remote and Rural Mentoring Program for health students and new graduates who would like to link with remote health professionals.
Providing the CRANAplus Bush Support Service — a 24-hour confidential psychologist driven phone line (1800 805 391), plus self-care and stress management workshops.
Delivering various publications and resources such as “When the Cowpat hits the Windmill”.
Offering our annual conference as an opportunity to network with remote health clinicians and fellow students in a collegial supportive environment.
Being the first port of call for new graduates asking about career advice, mentoring and support.
Endorsing the adoption of guidelines and resources such as NRHSN’s ‘Optimising Clinical Placement Guidelines’ and the UDRH Student Information Guide which promote the pursuit of remote health of a career choice while advancing well-being.
You may be interested in our collection of resources for students, such as relevant websites, publications and guides. This includes our Pathway to Remote Professional Practice booklet outlining what is required for health science and nursing students and graduates to be confident and prepared when going ‘bush’.
