We have an excellent opportunity for registered nurses to join APNA as casual Clinical Nurse Facilitators (CNF).
As a CNF, you'll guide and inspire Bachelor of Nursing Students through their placements in aged care, ensuring they reach their learning milestones.
Placements are onsite in aged care facilities near you, in two to six-week blocks, with six or eight students in each group.
We offer monthly payments, comprehensive training (including Mental Health First Aid and Cultural Safety), equipment, and clinical support as you go.
