Flinders University Partnership

We’re making it easier for you to pursue a career in mental health.

Mental health is one of the most understaffed nursing workforces in South Australia. The current chronic shortage means there are many career opportunities for Registered Nurses wishing to move into this challenging and rewarding area.

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).

We’re currently finalising our course curriculum, in conjunction with Flinders University, and a 2019 course calendar will soon be released.

To be among the first to take advantage of this partnership arrangement, register your interest via training@anmfsa.org.au and we’ll keep you informed of developments and opportunities arising out of this partnership.
