First Nations nurses to apply for free Transition to Practice Programs

The Aged & Community Care Providers Association (ACCPA) is offering First Nations nurses free places in its Nursing Transition to Practice Programs. This initiative aims to improve culturally safe care for older Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

As part of ACCPA’s ongoing commitment to reconciliation, we are extending this exciting opportunity to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nurses interested in pursuing a career in aged and community care.

Through these programs, participants will receive mentorship and professional development, and gain valuable experience in the field. The programs are available to graduate registered nurses, graduate enrolled nurses and transitioning registered nurses.

We recognise the importance of a diverse and culturally competent workforce in providing quality care,” says Tom Symondson, ACCPA CEO.

We are committed to taking meaningful action to support career development for First Nations people. By empowering First Nations nurses through our programs, we are actively contributing to the betterment of our community and the broader aged care sector.

ACCPA’s Transition to Practice Programs provide participants with the opportunity to secure ongoing employment, allowing them to further their careers while making a meaningful difference in community.

The number of Australians requiring aged care is set to double by 2050, providing countless opportunities for nurses.
