Equipping internationally trained workers with the sociocultural, leadership and communication skills that are necessary for successful integration into the Queensland workforce will be critical for our State’s future success.

As is the rest of Australia, Queensland is facing an acute shortage of healthcare workers, especially in regional, rural and remote areas. To address the current and projected shortfall the consortium lead, Southern Cross University, together with partner universities (CQU University) in Queensland and India (KLE Institute for Nursing Sciences) will deliver a digitally enhanced training program to provide internationally qualified nurses with skills in communication, leadership and critical thinking skills expected of nurses working in the Australian healthcare sector.
