The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation National practice standards for nurses in general practice are now available.
These Standards articulate what constitutes best practice for registered nurses and enrolled nurses involved in and being attracted to, the increasingly popular area of general practice.
The ANMF thanks the hundreds of nurses who generously committed their time to participating in research and contributing to the National Standards.
We acknowledge the significant contribution of the Project Advisory Group and Reference Group members to the research and development of these Standards.
The ANMF National toolkit for nurses in general practice is a companion document to the ANMF National practice standards for nurses in general practice, providing resources for registered nurses and enrolled nurses working in general practice. In addition, the Toolkit contains information of benefit to general practices seeking to employ registered nurses and midwives.
The revised Standards Toolkit includes a self-assessment tool for use against the Standards, a professional development plan and portfolio, sample advertisements, job descriptions and interview questions.
Please note that the booklets contained within the Toolkit have been made available to download as separate documents for your convenience.
