Future career intentions can be influenced by the quality and delivery of undergraduate nursing education. Currently, most Australian Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) often focus undergraduate nursing curriculums and clinical placement experiences towards preparing pre-registration nurses for work in acute care settings. This abstract describes the strategies employed to invigorate a primary healthcare (PHC) unit at a single HEI encompassing five campuses across two primary health networks. It highlights the important role of PHC nurses in undergraduate education and developing our next generation of PHC nurses. Outcomes show that invigorating a PHC curriculum can positively improve the profile and interest in PHC as a career option amongst pre-registration nursing students. This is important as we strive to meet projected workforce demands created by the increased prevalence of chronic health conditions treated in the community.
