See below for the QNU’s professional news:
Some Registered Nurses, Midwives and Enrolled Nurses and many health or aged care service managers appear to be a little confused about the distinction between nursing’s scope of practice, recency of practice and competency.
In these cost-cutting times, nurses are often being asked to undertake additional duties. While there is no barrier for ENs and RNs working as AINs, there are professional and ethical dilemmas you should carefully consider before doing paid work as an AIN.
National and international research supports the QNU’s position that there needs to be a career pathway in all streams, particularly Registered Nurse (Grade 5 to Grade 7).
Queensland Health employees can now have peace of mind that their conditions of employment will not be lost during and after the transition to Local Health and Hospital Networks (LHHNs).
The QNU has developed a Workload Management Low Priority Activities Notice to help nurses and midwives manage their workloads.
The transition to Local Health and Hospitals Networks (LHHNs) has entered its final six months.
Late in 2011, the Queensland Health Centre for Healthcare Improvement and the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Service released the Guide to Informed Decision-making in Healthcare.
