SUMMARY

Nurse Practitioners are registered nurses that have advanced experience training and education usually at a Masters level. In other countries they are an integral part of the health system. I would like to see this in Australia especially in remote Australia where the need for experienced skilled nurses is so important.

I would recommend

  • Introduction of Nurse Practitioner-led Clinics
  • Promotion of the role and scope of practice of Nurse Practitioners to the wider community with advertising about the benefits Nurse Practitioners can offer the health system.
  • Identified positions for Nurse Practitioners in all areas of nursing.
  • Improve conditions and housing in remote areas for all nursing staff
  • Management support to attend conferences and training
  • Broadening the telehealth use in remote areas.
  • Promote flexible employment within remote health.
  • Community based health information system.
  • Provide Government scholarships for Nurse Practitioners courses.
