The demand for nurses in Australia is predicted to grow over the coming decade with a further 100,000 registered nurses required by 2030. An ageing population and increasing demand for health services, coupled with the increased adoption of new technologies and practices is changing the role and skills required of a nurse in Australia.
The Graduate Certificate in Advanced Nursing – Australian Nursing Practice builds on the knowledge and skills of Internationally Qualified Registered Nurses and introduces them to nursing practice in Australia.
Students will learn from Australian Registered Nurses about the Australian health care system which is the perfect preparation for nurses that are looking to register as a nurse in Australia.
The course includes four-weeks OSCE in preparation for OBA registration testing in Australia and a four-week Practical Experience Placement (PEP) in healthcare facilities, following successful completion of the theory, simulation and OSCE preparation.
*This course does not lead directly to nursing registration in Australia.
This course will expand on a student’s prior knowledge and skills while also providing an introduction to the nursing profession in Australia. The purpose of this course is to give an Internationally Qualified Registered Nurse (IQRN) the chance to learn about the Australian health-care system. This programme includes a Practical Experience Placement (PEP) to allow the IQRN to further improve their knowledge and abilities in the context of Australian nursing practise.
After passing the theory, simulation, and OSCE, students will be eligible to begin Practical Experience Placement (PEP). This course will allow students to expand on what they learned in the core unit of this speciality, such as the framework of accountability and responsibility for practising evidence-based nursing within the Australian healthcare system’s legislation and standards.
Each week will be devoted to a different theme. The students’ existing knowledge and relevant professional experience were taken into account when creating the Course Learning Outcomes (ULOs).
The Graduate Certificate in Advanced Nursing – Australian Nursing Practise speciality has been carefully created to help Internationally Qualified Registered Nurses become familiar with the Australian health-care system. This course will help overseas trained registered nurses gain a thorough understanding of the practise styles and requirements in Australian healthcare settings, as well as prepare them to confidently take the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency’s Objective Structured Registered Clinical Examination (OSCE) (AHPRA).
