Orticare Pharmacotherapy Network is offering scholarships to Alcohol and other Drug (AOD) Nurse Practitioner Candidates (NPCs) working in the Grampians or Loddon Mallee Regions.

Release date: 16/10/2018

 

Orticare is the Grampians Loddon Mallee Pharmacotherapy Network, one of five area-based networks in Victoria, which works to create better access to pharmacotherapy services for all clients living in the region.

One of Orticare’s current workforce development priorities is to increase the number and capacity of Drug and Alcohol Nurse Practitioners (NPs) in the catchment.  NPs constitute a significant value-add to the pharmacotherapy service system and to the AOD service system more broadly, as they are able to offer diagnostic and prescribing expertise while operating from a holistic nursing framework.

Orticare is currently offering scholarships to Drug and Alcohol Nurse Practitioner Candidates working in the Grampians or Loddon Mallee Regions. The scholarships provide financial support towards completion of the Masters of Nursing Practice (Nurse Practitioner) qualification.
