The University of South Australia will work with the State Government to help meet the growing demands on the State’s health workforce, following the announcement today that thousands of nurses and midwives will benefit from new scholarships and training.

Premier Peter Malinauskas and Minister for Health and Wellbeing Chris Picton visited UniSA’s Horizon Hospital and Health Service to announce a series of training programs being rolled out across South Australia.

The SA Health Nursing and Midwifery Skills and Training Package will be delivered over the next three years.

SA Health is partnering with the University of South Australia, the University of Melbourne and the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation on programs to meet clinical needs in metropolitan, regional and rural areas.

UniSA’s Clinical Specialisation Program (including 3000 scholarships) will allow registered nurses and midwives the opportunity to undertake a new accelerated pathway into clinical specialisation.

Program delivery is tailored to the SA Health environment and provides nurses and midwives the foundation skills to fast-track their journey into postgraduate clinical specialisation qualifications.

UniSA Nursing and Midwifery Dean of Programs Professor Rachael Vernon welcomed the State Government's annoucement.

“This initiative is a significant partnership between SA Health and the University of South Australia, providing an opportunity to further enhance the capacity and capability of our nursing and midwifery workforce and ultimately improve the health outcomes of our community,” Prof Vernon says.

"We are looking forward to working with the State Government to help meet the growing demands on the health workforce."

The Clinical Specialisation Program commenced at UniSA this week.
