Advanced Subjects in Sexual Health Nursing

In collaboration with the Australian College of Nursing, ASHM has developed two postgraduate subjects. These may be completed as part of a Graduate Certificate or as individual courses:

  • Sexual Health Nursing: Principles and Practice is designed to improve nursing practice by providing the theoretical knowledge base required to assess and manage clients with, or at risk of, STIs.
  • Sexual Health Nursing: Clinical Practice aims to provide nurses with a competency based clinical framework leading to sexual health skills accreditation.

Each subject can be completed over one semester and participants must enrol through The Australian College of Nursing either online or on 02 9745 7500. 

To support nurses to enrol in these subjects, ASHM may be able to provide scholarships or information on where to attain financial assistance.
