Graduate Certificate of Nursing (Rural and Remote)

Course Description

This course has been developed in response to the demand from Registered Nurses who are seeking tertiary qualifications in rural and remote practice. The course has been designed through collaboration with The Cunningham Centre (Queensland Health).
Students will engage in theory and clinical learning to enhance their performance in the specialty area of rural and remote practice, while attaining a postgraduate university degree at James Cook University. This course uses an additive model, with subjects being offered by JCU and Queensland Health to fulfil the requirements of the award.
The specialty component of the course is to be conducted by The Cunningham Centre within their Rural and Isolated Practice Health (Drugs and Poisons) Regulation 1996 – Registered Nurse Course [RIPRN].

This course is available to International students via external or distance study only.
