Advice for injured/ill nurses

The ANMF (Victoria Branch) developed this guide as a resource for injured and/or ill nurses in Victoria (2009). It is designed to assist those who are unable to return to their pre-injury and/or clinical role due to the ongoing effects of their injury and/or illness. It includes career planning guidance and identifies different nursing roles and employment opportunities in nursing.
