CSU looks for ways to attract aged care nurses

Finding practical ways to draw nursing graduates into aged care to curb shortages is the aim of a new Charles Sturt University (CSU) study.

Staff from CSU’s School of Nursing, Midwifery and Indigenous Health will work with Catholic Healthcare Limited to establish a Centre for Innovation in Learning and Mentoring at Holy Spirit Aged Care Dubbo.

While studies have previously found that student nurses have negative opinions about aged care, research has also found graduate recruitment is facilitated if a student has a positive and supportive workplace learning experience.

The study- Expanding non-traditional, quality clinical placements in an aged care setting in western NSW- will be funded by NSW West Interdisciplinary Clinical Training Network.
