APNA’s workforce survey aims to equip nurses working in primary health care with information on the workforce conditions of their profession
Transition to Practice Pilot Program
The APNA Transition to Practice Pilot Program is a 12 month program of support for nurses transitioning to primary health care. It is supported by funding from the Australian Government Department of Health under the Nursing in Primary Health Care Program.
The APNA Transition program will deliver and evaluate an accessible and structured 12 month transition program, with the aim of increasing the confidence, skills and knowledge of nurses, commencing work in primary health care settings1.
The program will be delivered in two tranches with nurses who have recently commenced work in primary health care. The timeframes for each tranche are as follows:
- Tranche 1: April 2016 – March 2017 - closure of program has commenced
- Tranche 2: April 2017 – March 2018 - about to commence
1 For the purposes of the APNA Transition to Practice program, primary health care settings are considered to be workplaces outside of the acute health care setting – including aged care, correctional health, community care and general practice.
Tranche 2 Participants Announced
As Tranche One draws to a close, the participants for Tranche two have now been selected and announced.
APNA would like to thank all who applied. With over 200 applications received and over 100 individual applications assessed, APNA is thrilled to announce that 27 Transitioning Nurses and 20 Clinical and Professional Mentors have been selected to participate in Tranche 2 of APNA’s Transition program for the next 12 months.
