Workforce Professional Development

At IHNA we partner with healthcare providers around Australia to deliver accredited training programs. We also develop customised training solutions to meet specific needs to enhance the competency and capability of the healthcare workforce. We frequently partner with nursing homes and hospitals in the development of training solutions to enhance their competency and capacity.

As a specialist healthcare education and training provider, we place an emphasis on delivering nationally accredited education and CNE (Continuing Nursing Education) programs that are relevant to industry and develop skills and competency to meet the challenges of tomorrow.

We embrace the latest technologies and collaborative tools in the design and delivery of our healthcare education and training programs. This approach helps to create new opportunities not only for students around the world to develop and enhance their skills but also for Governments and healthcare organisations to develop the future health workforce.
