Education / In-Service Calender

 

Hunter Nursing supports our staff by arranging education and in-services on various topics relevant to your positions. Hunter Nursing encourages all staff to further their knowledge by attending the education sessions that will be held each month. Generally these sessions are not compulsory and staff will not be paid to attend.  If the session is compulsory you will see it on your roster and you will be paid for the compulsory sessions. The in-services are a mix of  external educators and Hunter Nursing staff presenting the education. We encourage staff to attend to support their colleagues when they are presenting.  Attendance at these in-services will count towards your CPD points.
