As health professionals, you are continually refreshing and expanding your knowledge to remain current and compliant in your professional career and to provide the community with the best care possible. But have you thought of developing your skills further to pursue a career in a more specialised area of health care?
Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (SA Branch) CEO/Secretary Adj Associate Professor Elizabeth Dabars AM says the union’s education centre is a recognised industry leader in health-focused training solutions that adapt to a busy working lifestyle.
“The sheer range of innovative options available to nurses and midwives is a big contributor to the Centre’s recent award success as South Australian Training Provider of the Year.”
“If you’re an Enrolled Nurse, you can take your knowledge to the next level through ANMEC’s Advanced Diploma of Nursing program,” Ms Dabars says.
“The program offers specialty streams in either acute care or aged care, delivered through a series of online modules to provide you with the flexibility to approach your learning in a way that suits you, your working and family demands and your lifestyle.”
She says ANMEC’s partnership with Flinders University has also opened up opportunities for Registered Nurses looking to upskill in an area of chronic workforce shortage.
“ANMEC has made it easier for Registered Nurses to pursue a specialist career in mental health through an innovative partnership with Flinders University.”
“Mental health is suffering from a shortfall of specialist nurses and an ageing workforce, so there are numerous employment opportunities for Registered Nurses with qualifications in this field.”
The partnership enables you to springboard from studies at ANMEC into tertiary studies at Flinders University.
“Successful completion of ANMEC’s three nine-week mental health modules and associated assessment items, will provide you with the opportunity to apply for credits against your post-graduate nursing qualification at Flinders University, providing a kick start to your Mental Health nursing career.”
“Importantly, all of the modules are delivered online, enabling you to work your studies around your already busy lifestyle.”
Not yet ready to launch into post-graduate university studies? No problem.
Ms Dabars says ANMEC’s Mental Health Nursing modules are also available under the Continuing Professional Development program.
“As part of your ongoing CPD requirements, you can now obtain skills in mental health nursing that are sure to prove valuable in any health care setting. And, of course, this also provides for an excellent introduction to post-graduate study, should you wish to pursue that path in the future.”
ANMEC’s qualified and clinically practising educators are expertly equipped to help you take your nursing career to the next level.
“We have heard of dreadful stories where students have completed their course only to discover they could not be registered because the training provider was not accredited.”
“All ANMEC courses are fully accredited with the relevant authorities and are quality-monitored by industry reference groups at the frontline of the health care industry.
ANMEC students also benefit from access to dedicated Course Coordinators, onsite academic library resources and administrative assistance, ensuring you have the flexibility to manage your own learning with help on standby when needed.
