Nurse giving a vulnerable person a COVID injection

Receive free Authorised Nurse Immuniser in NSW training and administer vaccinations independent of a medical officer.

Registered nurses who work in general practice or residential aged care homes in South Western Sydney have the opportunity for 100 per cent cost reimbursed training to become an Authorised Nurse Immuniser in NSW.

Completion of the Immunisation Endorsement Pathway (Nurse Immuniser) course authorises nurses to administer vaccinations independent of a medical officer. The course is delivered by The Benchmarque Group.
