SASH nurse training programs

SASH has a unique Nurse Education Leader, who has a strong background in nurse education at TAFE. Together with the SASH Nursing Unit Managers, the Nurse Education Leader will be responsible for guiding new nurses through a formal program that will transition nurses from general practice into SASH specialty practice.

The SASH Hospital Care Training Program was developed at SASH for SASH and will expose you to multiple departments within the hospital. Nurses that undergo this training will learn core skills needed to be a SASH specialty nurse. It includes:

  • Skills & techniques
  • Theory
  • Assessments
  • Printed resources
  • Online learning through SASH’s digital learning platform
Although SASH prioritises nurse training, the program is flexible and designed to fit in with your own expectations and lifestyle. Whether you want to dive in head first, or slowly dip your toe in the water, it is entirely up to you.

At the conclusion of the program, you will be ready to advance into a specialty field. However, the training and support does not end there. With a robust nurse development program, there’s always something to learn at SASH.

SASH is vet led

With the owners of the hospitals walking the corridors in scrubs, each and everyday, they have a deep and thorough understanding of what makes a good hospital, how to provide gold standard patient care, and how pet owners feel. These unique insights help to guide decisions are that in the best interest of their patients and their team.

Having been veterinarians for decades, SASH management understands and appreciate the importance of nurses. This is why the nurses at SASH are well supported, have a voice, and will always be heard by those that can make changes.
