Hosting student nurses in your workplace

We're looking for primary health care workplaces and aged care providers interested in hosting students in their workplaces. Read on to find out how you can show student nurses the rewarding and varied career paths a nurse can take outside of a hospital.


National Nursing Clinical Placement Program 

APNA is expanding the program into new areas, and we are inviting primary health care nurses to join us by hosting student nurses in your workplace.

Benefits to you and your workplace include:

  • We will pay your workplace $50 per student per day
  • Supervisors are supported throughout, including education and professional development
  • 2-4 week placement windows available throughout the year
  • Workplaces can build a pipeline of prospective future employees
  • APNA organises everything for you, allowing you to focus on sharing your know-how with the next generation of nurses.

Join us and help make primary health care the first choice for nurses when leaving education. 




What's it like being a supervisor in the Clinical Placement Program?

APNA placements are successful thanks to the depth of the support provided to students, ensuring they get the most out of their time in your workplace.

Become a Clinical Nurse Facilitator

Are you ready to take your career to the next level and make a lasting impact on nursing students' perceptions of this exciting sector?

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.
