Immunisation Activities for Practice Nurses
APNA together with the Australian Divisions of General Practice, the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing and the Royal Australian College of General Practioners, has developed online immunisation education modules for practice nurses.
These learning activities can be accessed online and used by practice nurses to update their immunisation knowledge. This is an interactive and enjoyable way to learn, and provides useful links to other sources of information - great for nurses in rural or remote areas where access can be an issue.
PLEASE NOTE - This course is temporarily unavailable while it is being updated.
For practice nurses and other primary health care nurses, the revised Immunisation Activities will be available soon through the new APNA Online Learning portal at www.apna.asn.au/onlinelearning
GPs wishing to undertake any modules of this course should contact gpLearning for more information.
*This course was previously hosted through the RACGP's gpLearning.
It is not a requirement that you are an APNA member to register for this course.
