What are my career prospects with a Rural and Remote health qualification?
With such a high demand for Rural and Remote health nursing in Australia’s rural population, studying Rural and Remote health can help make a difference for rural Australian communities where healthcare services are often limited.
UniSQ’s Graduate Certificate of Nursing (Rural and Remote) is designed for registered nurses who want to further develop their industry expertise in rural and isolated healthcare delivery. By undertaking this Rural and Remote nursing course, you will recognise the social, cultural and geographical climate that affects the health care system in these remote communities, such as the absence of specific support services.
A Graduate Diploma in Nursing (Rural & Remote) will develop your clinical decision-making skills and help you gain the relevant qualifications to work as a remote nurse. You will learn the legal framework underpinning your practice, advance your physical examination and diagnostic skills and build knowledge of certain drugs to administer in an advanced patient context.
Our Rural and Remote nursing courses in QLD are available on-campus and online for your convenience. They will equip you to work in a variety of rural and remote settings in regional towns, Indigenous communities, farming and mining communities, tourism and with refugee and international communities.
