The Australian College of Nursing (ACN) in collaboration with ConvaTec ANZ, and supported by The Australian Association of Stomal Therapy Nurses (AASTN) and The New Zealand Nurses organisation College of Stomal Therapy Nurses (NZNOCSTN), is delighted to offer three scholarships for nurses to complete the ACN Graduate Certificate in Stomal Therapy Nursing, commencing July 2020.
ACN is the only online provider of the Graduate Certificate in Stomal Therapy Nursing. Guided by the philosophy of the AASTN this course equips nurses with the knowledge and skills to excel in Stomal Therapy Nursing.
Stomal therapy nursing is a dynamic and demanding area that requires specific skills and expertise and it is hoped that by offering these scholarships, future leaders, who might otherwise not have been able to participate, will be supported to do so.
The course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to deliver and coordinate evidenced-based care for patients who are referred to a stomal therapy nurse. The aim is to encourage professional and ethical understanding of clinical practice development for the improvement of patient outcomes. The course is written by specialist nurses, for nurses, and students are supported by a team of clinical experts who work within the speciality.
Core subjects allow students to further explore wound and continence management as well as leadership and professional practice.
