R&R New to Remote Pathway

Ready for the ultimate nursing adventure?

What is HCA’s New to Remote Pathway?

A placement pathway unique to Healthcare Australia designed to support Registered Nurses in developing their existing clinical knowledge and experience towards the goal of working in Remote Health.

Leveraging off HCA’s reputation, extensive experience and client relationships, we can offer candidates placements in rural and then remote areas to give them the confidence to transition their careers from urban Emergency Nursing to remote Primary Health Nursing.

Each Registered Nurse will work with a dedicated Rural & Remote Consultant who will identify placement opportunities across Australia in rural Emergency Departments, Multi-Purpose Centres and Primary Healthcare sites which will assist in the candidate being exposed to the following:

  • Agency life
  • Autonomous practice
  • Indigenous Health Aspects
  • Primary Healthcare
  • On Call/Call out systems

Candidates who do not meet HCA’s New to Remote Pathway (NTRP) criteria would benefit from completing more comprehensive courses such as the Centre for Remote Health’s Transition to Remote Area Nursing 10 day short course. The HCA R&R Team will be happy to provide you with any advice you might need to assist you in getting your Rural & Remote nursing adventure started in the right direction. Don’t hesitate to ask!
