The Australian Government has announced the National Rural and Remote Nursing Generalist Framework. The framework supports registered nurses to work to their full ability in rural and remote healthcare settings.
The government has released the National Rural and Remote Nursing Generalist Framework 2023-2027.
The framework is for RNs who work in rural and remote locations across Australia, or are looking to relocate there.
It outlines the unique skills and support needed by RNs who practice nursing in these locations.
The framework will:
- allow rural and remote RNs to strengthen their practice
- empower educators to inform curriculum
- guide employers to support RNs to practice with confidence.
