Dear Members,

the Australian Government, Department of Health, has commissioned an independent review “Educating the Nurse of the Future”. As the only professional body in Australia representing nurse educators, we will be making a submission to the Government.

To assist us, we ask that you send us your comments on any or all of the 4 main areas the review will cover, that is:

 ·         The effectiveness of current educational preparation of and articulation between enrolled and registered nurses and nurse practitioners in meeting the needs of health service delivery

·         Factors that affect the choice of nursing as an occupation, including for men

·         The role and appropriateness of transition to practice programs however named.

·         The competitiveness and attractiveness of Australian nursing qualifications across international contexts


Please put your comments in a survey via the following link. ANTS will compile all responses so please submit your comments by COB Friday 28 May to have ‘your say’. If the survey link does not work, cut and paste the URL into your browser.
