  AAG presents: You can’t be, what you can’t see:

Using a structured clinical placement program
to attract registered nurses to aged care

The majority of students in nursing degrees are allocated to a placement in an aged care environment. This usually occurs early in their degree, where the focus is on the development of fundamental care skills.  Students are often paired with care workers, and often rarely engage with registered nurses. 

This lack of engagement means that students do not develop an awareness of the important role registered nurses play in the provision of expert gerontological care.  Raising this awareness, through a structured clinical placement program, will improve students understanding of the role of the registered nurse in caring for older people. This may attract more graduates to the role, as they begin to see the role for its value and importance in the provision and coordination of care. 

Attendees of this webinar will:

  • Learn about the CPOP program and the value of pedagogical rich activities 
  • Explore how this program will benefit your organisation
  • Evaluate activities needed to enhance clinical learning
