Preparing to transition into remote primary health care nursing FAQs

The Remote Area Health Corps (RAHC) is excited to share a new Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) flyer. This document answers commonly asked questions from nurses preparing to transition into a remote primary health care (PHC) setting. 

RAHC’s mission is to strengthen and support the PHC services of the Northern Territory (NT). We do so by responding to the health service’s requirements and offering Health Professionals (HP) appropriate to the particular clinic. Therefore, RAHC must ensure that the nurses we offer have the appropriate skills and experience to transition quickly into the remote environment. 

Three of the most common questions RAHC receives from interested nurses are:

  1. Do I have the skills and experience to transition into remote PHC  nursing?
  2. What is my role when working in the remote clinics of the NT?
  3. I still want to work remote but don’t meet the criteria. Is there any other option for me if I am not credentialed with RAHC?

To learn the answers to these questions, visit our FAQ page or download the Preparing to Transition into Remote PHC Nursing FAQ flyer.

Please be advised that the health service makes the final decision on accepting a HP for placement.
