Re-orientation to acute care setting

Re-orientation to acute care setting

Are you a nurse wanting to work during the pandemic but need to refresh your acute practice skills?

Refresh your acute practice skills with our two-day workshop.

You will need to nominate three hospitals you're prepared to work at.

  • Day 1: Clinical assessment using scenarios. Prepare yourself for patient care during acute clinical deterioration using theoretical and simulated exercises.
  • Day 2: Apply professional and safety standards, law and ethics. Refresh yourself with professional/organisational policies and procedures.

These workshops are no cost.

Proudly sponsored by your union ANMF (Vic Branch), and your super funds First State Super and HESTA.

This course is brand new and is currently only available in-person at ANMF Education Centre, 535 Elizabeth St Melbourne. Enrolments are limited to 8 places to ensure COVID-19 physical distancing rules are maintained.

Stay tuned for more information about delivery solely online. 


Due to the overwhelming interest in this course, we are currently scheduling further workshops (dates to be confirmed). You can register your interest here.
