Rural Urgent Care Nursing Program
In a nutshell, the Rural Urgent Care Nursing – Capability Development Program (RUCN-CDP), will provide resources which assist health services and staff to develop or enhance the skills and confidence required to work in Urgent Care Centres.
The program is an initiative of the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services to support Victoria’s nursing workforce. The Development Phase of this 3.5 year project commenced in mid-December 2019. The first program resources launched in April 2020 and the core program opened in September 2020.
The program provides professional development, linkages and mentoring support to nurses working in Victorian Urgent Care Centres.
All resources have been created or curated specifically for this program. They are entirely contextualised to the Urgent Care Setting.

Alfred’s role will be to administer and support the resourcing of the program and to aggregate the incredible resources, skills and experience of clinicians across the state of Victoria.
