The Nurse Transition Program
The Primary Care Nurse Transition Program has been specifically designed for new graduate registered nurses entering primary care directly from university studies. The graduate nurses will work in local general practices and become part of the multidisciplinary primary care team, whilst being supported by a Transition Program Coordinator. The coordinator will provide a structured education program, workplace learning opportunities, guidance and support for new graduates to maximise learning opportunities, and ensure a smooth first year transition into the primary health care workplace.
As part of the Nurse Transition Program, you will coordinate the implementation and delivery of the Primary Care Nurse Transition Program in the Northern Sydney region. The NTPC will oversee the engagement of General Practices; participate in the selection of Graduate Nurses and their placement within General Practices as well as coordinating and facilitating the education programs. As NTPC you will liaise with all stakeholders and act as an intermediary between the General Practices and SNHN for information sharing and documentation of the program.
