General public

The Australian Government will provide funding for registered nurses to undertake online education to enable them to re-enter the clinical workforce and assist with the national response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite swift action by Australian governments, the number of COVID-19 cases will continue to grow.

It is likely that unprecedented demand for health care will put pressure on our health system and health professionals, especially doctors and nurses whose work is vital to protecting and saving lives.

The Government will provide up to $1 million to the Australian College of Nursing (ACN) to provide an online refresher course with up to date information about acute nursing care, including latest evidence based guidelines on COVID-19 infection control.

The course will be available immediately to eligible registered nurses who hold current general registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia, and who meet the recency of Practice Registration Standard of 450 hours practice within the last five years.

Up to 1000 eligible nurses will be able to undertake the training free of charge.

This new investment builds on the Australian Government’s announced $2.4 billion health package aimed at protecting all Australians, including vulnerable groups such as the elderly, those with chronic conditions and Indigenous communities, from COVID-19.

Eligible nurses interested in undertaking the training should visit or contact the Australian College of Nursing, by email at or by phone on 1800 265 534.

Nurse Practitioners – We want you for the Bush Telehealth Trial

NT Synaps

We are excited to offer a new work opportunity to all Nurse Practitioners who would like an additional revenue stream, with no long-term commitment. You can just treat an occasional patient or let us help you fill your books. We connect Nurse Practitioners and Specialists, just like Uber connects drivers and riders – through an app!

We've been working on a very exciting project in the Northern Territory, in collaboration with experienced local stakeholders and partner organisations, offering telehealth services to remote communities. The initial patient consultations undertaken by a wonderful Nurse Practitioner have been a resounding success, so we are looking to expand the network, and have patients ready right now.

We are very proud of this most satisfying project, and are sure you will love engaging with your fellow Australians who live in remote communities, just as we have. One patient couldn’t believe they’d had their very first consultation with a professor at the ripe old age of 50!

This is a significant opportunity for Nurse Practitioners to quickly build your private practice. We provide administrative support, collaborative arrangements with a large network of GPs and specialists, flexible hours and working from home options.

We would love you to join us on this exciting journey so please get in touch to find out more.
