Learning on the go with APNA online learning
APNA is the peak body and professional membership association for all nurses working outside of a hospital setting in Australia—like the nurses who work in correctional health.
Correctional health is often described as an emergency department crossed with a general practice. Correctional health nurses provide healthcare to those incarcerated in the criminal justice system in a variety of settings such as jails, prisons, remand centres , and juvenile detention. The nursing team are often the first health professional prisoners will see in regards to health care.
Correctional health nurses who are APNA members receive: up-to-date education and resources; the latest industry news and guidelines; communities, expert advice and support; and career tools and professional benefits.
