• Focus on clinical governance, safe, high-quality care with consumer and community engagement.
• Complement the professional workforce reducing the number of Registered Nurses required.
• Enable place-based training and employment for First Nations Peoples in rural and remote settings as well as potential pathways into higher education.
• Assist in providing sustainable maintenance dialysis services closer to home.
