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:

  1. Sup­port­ing clin­i­cal place­ments through our scholarships to drive positive student experiences in sup­port­ive, informed undergraduate place­ments. Read our student stories to discover more about their experiences.

  2. Advo­cat­ing for and pro­mot­ing the avail­abil­i­ty of remote place­ments for under­grad­u­ates with both remote health ser­vices and the universities.

  3. Facilitating the LINKS Remote and Rur­al Men­tor­ing Pro­gram for health stu­dents and new grad­u­ates who would like to link with remote health pro­fes­sion­als.

  4. Pro­vid­ing the CRANAplus Bush Sup­port Ser­vice — a 24-hour con­fi­den­tial psy­chol­o­gist dri­ven phone line (1800 805 391), plus self-care and stress man­age­ment work­shops.

  5. Delivering various publications and resources such as “When the Cow­pat hits the Wind­mill”.

  6. Offering our annual conference as an opportunity to network with remote health clinicians and fellow students in a col­le­gial sup­port­ive environment.

  7. Providing courses such as Remote Emergency Care (REC) and Midwifery Emergency Care (MEC), organised through NRHSN for students to attend.

  8. Being the first port of call for new grad­u­ates ask­ing about career advice, men­tor­ing and sup­port.

  9. 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’.
