ANMF Media Release: Transition to Practice Program

28 June 2021

The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation Tasmanian Branch (ANMF) will tomorrow launch its Transition to Practice (TTP) video sessions on Wednesday, June 30.

ANMF Tasmanian Branch Secretary Emily Shepherd said the organisation – alongside the Health Education and Research Centre (HERC) – is committed to making a positive difference to Tasmania’s health.

“Our HERC provides a centre of excellence that delivers high quality Vocational Education and Training, professional development and related research for professionals in Tasmania.

“The TTP video sessions are perfect for current or graduate students looking to enter the workplace for the first time.

“Previously, our workshops have been in-person, but we are now offering them online to enable our students across the state access throughout the year.

“This interactive Information Hub will allow them to watch presentations on current programs, learn how to apply for jobs, hints and tips for interviews, hear from current graduates, and gain CPD (Continued Professional Development) hours for FREE.”

Ms Shepherd said this is also a great chance for participants to sign up to become a student member and experience the benefits of union membership before entering the workplace as nurses, midwives and/or care workers.

“Because of the current issues surrounding nursing recruitment and retainment in Tasmania, it’s imperative we harness our local, emerging talent to grow our nursing cohort.”
