Practice Nurse Support

We support nurses in general practices in the Blue Mountains, Hawkesbury, Lithgow, and Penrith LGAs. General Practice Support Officers can assist practices in the orientation and induction of new nurses and provide ongoing support after.

We run a closed Facebook group to connect nurses across the region. We encourage practice nurses to keep an eye on our events calendar for online and face-to-face trainings, and subscribe to our newsletter to receive Practice News and Upcoming Events, alternately every fortnight.

To learn more about the support we provide practice nurses, email Lauren Crisell or contact us online
