Mandatory Professional Development for Remote Area Nurses
The Northern Territory (NT) Department of Health (DoH) require that all Remote Area Nurses (RANs) who work for DoH have completed, or updated if necessary, all courses considered mandatory for remote practice. Future placements in NT DoH clinics will be affected if this requirement is not being met.
RANs are therefore advised to maintain their currency or complete the mandatory courses required for placement in remote practice.
RAHC encourages all RANs to update their professional development and maintain or complete the following mandatory courses:
- Remote Emergency Care – REC Course: expiry 3 years
- Maternity Emergency Care - MEC Course or Midwifery Up-Skilling MIDUS course: expiry 3 years
- Pharmacotherapeutics : expiry to be advised by NT DoH
- NT recognised vaccination course – to see what courses are recognised follow this link (https://health.nt.gov.au/professionals/centre-for-disease-control/immunisation-health-professionals/about-giving-vaccines-course)
- NT AGV upskilling course: available on the RAHC eLearning site learn.rahc.com.au
RAHC is committed to supporting our Health Professionals in obtaining the skills required for safe practice relating to remote health practice. We continue to provide private CRANA Plus courses twice a year as well as reimbursement for course fees to support and ensure that HPs maintain their currency.
