How we support you

St Vincent's Pathway to Specialty Practice Nurse Program offers you the opportunity to practice in a supportive environment that will facilitate your ongoing development as a Registered Nurse and allow you to build upon your knowledge and skills in the delivery of quality patient care and personal development.

Prior to Commencement

Before you commence you will receive the relevant learning packages and handbooks to gain an understanding of clinical areas in your PSP stream as part of your preparation.


In your first week you will attend a comprehensive 3-day orientation in our Education and Training Centre.

The orientation week includes presentations, tutorials and practical sessions.

You will be allocated supernumerary time during which you will work alongside your preceptor.
