The Continuing Professional Education online training room currently provides over 50 best practice topics including those modules that are deemed mandatory annual competencies by large health organisations and nursing agencies. ANMF, NSWNMA and QNU members currently receive 11 free topics and a free professional development portfolio to provide evidence to the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) of participation in CPD annually.

The Aged Care Training Room is a one-stop-shop for nurses whose area of practice is aged care in the residential or community setting. Here you will find over 60 learning activities that address mandatory education, the residential and home care standards and older people’s physical health, mental health, special needs and disability. The ANMF ACTR annual subscription includes access to the CPD learning needs and plan, learning activity reflections and evaluations and a printable log of course completions.

The Online Clinical Simulation for Nurses training room offers 3D simulated learning for clinical procedures and currently consists of 32 modules. Each module teaches a different procedure through an interactive simulation, accompanied by a step-by-step text with hyperlinks, a video demonstration, a 3D model of the anatomy encountered during the procedure and a quiz.

The Body Systems training room offers the most comprehensive collection of health education programs. The ANMF’s newest Training Room offers low cost subscription access to a range of CPD courses covering anatomy and physiology, disease and disease management, and medical procedures.
