Student Nurse Placement Program

APNA Student Nurse Placement Program

The APNA Student Nurse Placement Program is a National program which runs from March to December 2021.

We invite you and your workplace to particpate in our program, open to all primary health care workplaces nationally. This includes but is not limited to general practice, aged care and community health settings that employ Registered Nurses.

As an incentive, your workplace will receive a payment for each student who undertakes a clinical placement at your practice.

To host a student for clinical placement you need:

  1. A registered nurse or nurse practitioner;
  2. A nurse supervisor each day of the placement (job share is acceptable);
  3. To provide clinical supervision of 38hrs per week

Placements range from two to three weeks (10-15days). 

Sky's the limit on how many students you host. Either way, whether it's one student or 10, you're contributing to a nurse's career and Australia's health care future. 

If you have any questions, please email us via Additionally, if you know of any other practices or primary health care workplaces that would be interested in hosting a student nurse, please give them a nudge and share this webpage.

We look forward to working with you in support of Australia's next generation of primary health care nurses.
