Upon completion of accreditation program, RNs will be able to immunise independent of medical officers in NSW. If practicing outside of NSW, check health policies in the relevant state or territory to confirm eligibility to immunise independent of medical officers.

NSW Policy
CPD - Continuing Professional Development

 

To maintain authority to immunise, registered nurses must annually review best practice policy for immunisation. 

This may be, but is not limited to, attendance at seminars on current practices. An annual statement of proficiency in cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) must also be obtained.
