We Are Here For Australian Nurses

We are a website run by nurses, for nurses, and we are here to provide support and assistance to professionals and students of all specialties. Nurse2nurse.com.au is a national reference, and an important tool if you are looking to further your career in the Australian health industry.

Those of us who are care givers know that nursing is so much more than a profession. It takes guts, stamina and a true commitment to helping individuals. Florence Nightingale called it an art, the finest art there is. The art of caring. Whilst nurses seem to have an endless supply of caring to give to others, it is important that we take time to nourish and work on ourselves. This is imperative if we are to maintain a high level of care to our patients, and stay abreast of current industry regulations and procedures. We are here to help and support you because as nurses, that’s what we do!

What is a nurse? A nurse is defined as a person trained to care for the sick or infirm, primarily in a hospital. Since the 1930’s this training has been provided in a university setting, with the first Phd being handed out in the late 1970’s as a Diploma of Applied Science. In the 1990’s the Universities granted nursing the same status as Allied Health and began giving Bachelors rather than Diplomas.

What are the obligations? There are legal obligations and requirements of being a nurse in Australia and all nurses are required to be registered under the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (est 1992). Both students and nurses alike are regulated by the Nursing and Mifwifery Board of Australia, which runs under the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.

How do I ensure all my legal requirements are met? Nurse2nurse.com.au specialise in providing up to date information for nurses and students regarding their rights and obligations. Our career help page offers assistance and information for R.N’s (Registered Nurses) and E.N’s (Enrolled Nurses) needing to upgrade their skillset or enter specialised areas of care such as psychiatric or perioperative nursing (theatre nurse). Most importantly, we recognise the need for our nurses to monitor and achieve continued professional development points (CPD) in order to maintain their registration every year.
