NurseCentral / Weblog / Links Updated


Links Updated

This week I have spent quite a bit of time researching and updating the Links section of the website. I believe NurseCentral has the most complete library of Australian Nursing Links on the web, please let me know if someone else has a more complete list. We now have a selection of 96 links to Australian Nursing and Midwifery colleges, associations and organisations.

If you know of a site that we haven't got listed, please submit it for inclusion to make sure we are continuously the most up-to-date resource on the internet.

Good news for SA nurses this week as their Enterprise Bargaining deal was agreed giving them a 14.5% payrise over the next 3 years. I am especially looking forward to seeing the details on the career structure and country staffing methodology.

I have been really pleased to see that the forums are gaining more momentum and am glad that there is some good discussion and assistance given to various members by the community of NurseCentralites.
