Refresher program for Registered Nurses

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

This course is designed for RNs holding general registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia who meet the Recency of Practice Registration Standard of three (3) months practice in the last five years but wish to refresh their knowledge in acute care nursing. It is also ideal for nurses working in non-acute areas of practice that wish to work in acute care.

The program builds on previous knowledge, skills and experience in preparation for demonstration of safe practice.
