To work in mental health in South Australia, you must have – or be studying towards – qualifications in mental health nursing. Traditionally, that has meant accessing post-graduate studies via the SA Tertiary Admissions Centre (SATAC) application process once or twice per year (course-dependent). Until now. ANMF (SA Branch) has teamed up with Flinders University to make it easier than ever for nurses to transition into post-graduate studies in mental health, among a range of other specialties. This initiative provides nurses with more streamlined access to post-graduate studies at Flinders University by enabling them to springboard from a related Continuing Professional Development (CPD) course at our Australian Nursing and Midwifery Education Centre (ANMEC). To take advantage of this partnership arrangement, please complete the Expression of Interest and our administration team will be in contact with you.
