Nurses can complete the theoretical modules in any order for the certificate as long as all seven are completed in the required timeframe.

Nurses wanting the full certificate must complete all theory and supervised clinical attachment within two-years of starting the theory. 

Entry Requirements/Eligibility

At least one-year post-registration experience is necessary for all nurses and midwives enrolling in the course. Current registration with Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). 

Previous experience in the area of women’s health, sexual and reproductive health or community health is an advantage but not a requirement.  

Recognition of prior learning is available to nurses who seek credits for previous study and/or existing skills (fees apply). Some of the modules have pre course readings and/or activities. These are compulsory and make up the assessment for each module. When you have registered and paid for your modules you will receive information on how to access the online modules.
