The Australian Nursing Federation have once again shown their commitment to older Australians and the nurses who care for them by offering aged and community care nurses a total solution to meeting their continuing professional development requirements for national registration.

Most nurses are now completing their registration renewals for 2012.

An annual subscription to the ANF Aged Care Training Room will provide aged and community care nurses with their required CPD hours plus a number of other online essential resources to fulfill the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia national registration CPD requirements.

The ANF has partnered with aged care online learning experts, Moving ON Training, to create the ANF Aged Care Training Room.

“Inequity exists not just in wages but in CPD opportunities for aged and community care nurses, especially those working in rural and remote areas.

“In developing the Aged Care Training Room, we were looking for a partner who shared our commitment to the ongoing education and development of the aged and community care workforce and had the experience and track record in developing and delivering aged care online education,” ANF Federal Education Officer Jodie Davis said.

The ANF Aged Care Training Room will provide aged and community care nurses with the depth and breadth of CPD activity and other essential resources to ensure they have the ongoing knowledge and skill base to deliver the best possible care to older Australians.

What do you think of this initiative? Is this something that would help you with your CPD?

  1. I am sure the ANF is making money out of this or they wouldn’t be doing it. Just remember AINs are not registered so they don’t have to worry about CPD opportunities. And just to make it clear it was the ANF who sat back and did nothing while many nurses lost their jabs as the government pushed bills to deregulate nursing. As for the nurses who are regulated, AHPRA and the ANF pushed the CPD issue with the threat of deregistering nurses if they didn’t get those 20 points. Meanwhile the universities, ANF and various training organizations are milking nurses like cash cows over those CPD points. What a joke.
