We now have immunisation learning pathways to support anyone working in Primary Healthcare! Whether you are looking to support those who do immunise, add Immunisation to your scope of practice, or become an authorised nurse immuniser – we have a learning solution for you.
EXCITING NEWS: We have recently received direct recognition from State Health Departments in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria. This means that students who successfully complete the Course in Immunisation Practice in Primary Healthcare (Immunisation Practice Pathway) and state-specific Endorsement Program will be able to immunise independently of a Medical Officer in these jurisdictions.
Immunisation Support Pathway
The Immunisation Support pathway, designed for students who do not immunise as part of their scope of practice, starts by building a base knowledge with the online program, Foundations of Immunisation Support.
Students can then continue on with a choice of four online programs and then move through to the Supporting Immunisation Practice Program, consisting of further learning, a face-to-face workshop and workplace activities.
Successfully completing the pathway means students will have achieved the nationally accredited Course in Immunisation Support in Primary Healthcare (10764NAT).
Immunisation Practice Pathway
The Immunisation Practice pathway, designed for students who do immunise as part of their scope of practice, also begins by building foundational knowledge in our online program Foundations of Immunisation Practice.
Students can then continue on with a choice of four online programs - options include immunisation needs in pregnancy, inﬂuenza, adult and older persons and school age programs.
Following on is the Practice of Immunisation Program, consisting of further learning, a face-to-face workshop in partnership with PHNs, and workplace activities.
Successfully completing this pathway means students will have achieved the nationally accredited Course in Immunisation Practice in Primary Healthcare (10754NAT).
Become a nurse immuniser – Immunisation Endorsement Program
The Benchmarque Group Immunisation Endorsement Program is a HESA (Health Education Services Australia) endorsed, online program for Registered Nurses and Midwives who want the ability to immunise independent of a medical officer. The program is specific to the state or territory the student works in and all students must have completed the entire learning pathway for the Course in Immunisation Practice in Primary Healthcare.
