Meet the RAHC team - Sharon Marchant, Remote Educator

Introducing Sharon Marchant (AKA Livesey) as a RAHC Remote Educator. To many health professionals, Sharon is a familiar face, both from her time as the RAHC Clinical Educator and from her many years of experience nursing in rural and remote Australia.

Sharon is a Qualified Nurse/Midwife with over 20 years’ experience including over 15 years working in rural and remote nursing in Australia, the past 10 working in the Northern Territory.

Sharon has worked overseas in various roles and countries and is passionate about encouraging and supporting nurses to work in remote Australia, where common sense, adaptability and a sense of humour is paramount.

Sharon is an experienced Remote Educator with RAHC. She kicked off the role in 2011 doing much of the preparatory work for the role and now performs the role on a  casual basis along with her other remote work and work as a facilitator with CRANAplus . Sharon has inspired many of our nurses to take on ongoing remote work by ensuring their first experience is a positive one.

RAHC Remote Educators (REs) provide support to health professionals (HPs) on their first RAHC placement. This support is to assist the HP with the transition to the remote environment both clinically and culturally.
