The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Journal (ANMJ), a publication of the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (ANMF), has developed a comprehensive one-stop-shop learning and career resource for nurses, midwives, carers and students.
The ANMJ, which has provided a regular array of comprehensive stories relevant to the professions on its website over the past 18 months, has introduced a specific Learning and Career Hub for those wanting to enhance their workplace experience and/or develop career and educational opportunities.
The Learning and Career Hub offers tips and hints on a variety of career matters as well as career profiles and the latest news from the industry.
It also features areas specific for graduates and students to provide them with the extra support and resources they need during their early career.
In addition there is a national job board, a site for undergraduate and post graduate study and scholarship opportunities, as well as professional event listings.
Other highlights include links and articles on continuing professional development, which all nurses and midwives are required to undertake as part of their national registration.
ANMF Federal Secretary Annie Butler said the launch of the Hub comes at a time when nurses, midwives and carers needed support the most.
“They are at the forefront of the COVID-19 crisis,” she explained.
“Through the Learning and Career Hub we are offering them avenues to help them with their day to day practice in unprecedented times.
“In particular the Hub will assist students, new graduates and those returning to the workforce to potentially unfamiliar settings, who may feel they need extra support at the moment,” Ms Butler said.
“The ANMJ’s Learning and Career Hub is a great way we can offer this support over and above what the union already provides.”
Ms Butler said the ANMJ website, was already a good source of information for nurses, midwives and carers.
She said over 280,000 views over the past three months indicated the site was relevant to those working within the professions.
“We believe the addition of the new Learning and Career Hub to the ANMJ website is a much needed resource which will help every nurse, midwife, carer and student navigate and enhance their careers.”
The ANMF is Australia’s largest national union and professional nursing and midwifery organisation. It represents the professional, industrial and political interests of over 280,000 nurses, midwives and carers across the country.
