Free Immunisation course for Enrolled and Registered nurses in general practice: Limited places available
SEMPHN is pleased to offer eligible Practice Nurses the opportunity to access further education in immunisation services. The application is open and ongoing until advised.
The Practice Nurse grant will cover the cost of the Nurse Immunisation course for eligible nurses ($1000 per applicant) in the SEMPHN catchment, to support immunisations for influenza, other child and adult vaccinations, as well as the administration of COVID-19 vaccinations.
For this activity, SEMPHN is working in partnership with The Benchmarque Group. The Benchmarque Group has a nationally accredited course in Immunisation Practice in Primary Healthcare.
About the course
The course is appropriate for both Registered and Enrolled Nurses. On completion of the course, nurses will receive a nationally accredited statement of attainment.
The course takes approximately 110 hours to complete, including one full day workshop (face-to-face or online).
The grant allows the practice nurse to take funded study leave to attend the full-day workshop, however the remaining hours to complete the course will be in their own time.
All Registered Nurses who complete the online module and full-day workshop will be eligible to complete the Immunisation Endorsement Program at no additional cost. This extra program authorises Registered Nurses practising in Victoria to administer vaccines independently of a medical officer.
Note: The grant breakdown is $665 for the price for the Immunisation Clinical Pathway course and $335 for the full-day training session/study leave. The Immunisation Endorsement Pathway is available to all Registered Nurses at no additional cost (SEMPHN negotiated).
This opportunity is available for all Registered and Enrolled Nurses working in general practice in the SEMPHN catchment.
