For Immediate Release
Nurses who may have left the workforce but are keen to return are encouraged to apply for the next intake of a Registered Nurse Re-Entry to Practice Course offered by distance education, with online study.
This CQUniversity course can arrange clinical placements in the applicant's home region. It's the only course of its type in Queensland and the only one in Australia available via distance education.
A fresh round of scholarships open to Re-Entry applicants will be available early next year. Details will become available soon via the Australian College of Nursing website http://www.rcna.org.au/WCM/ or direct via THIS LINK.
CQUniversity's course has been approved by the Australian Health Practitioners Registration Agency (AHPRA) and was also accredited via the Australian Nursing & Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC).
Distance education is supplemented by three days of clinical skills workshops at CQUniversity Noosa Campus. This course suits nurses who have left the workforce more than five years (but less than 10 years) ago. Successful applicants can apply for a $6000 scholarship from the Australian College of Nursing to support study costs.
