The Rural Locum Assistance Programme (Rural LAP) is a component of the Australian Government’s rural workforce capacity agenda managed by healthcare solutions provider, Aspen Medical. The program aims to provide targeted rural and remote support services to general practitioners (obstetricians and anaesthetists), specialists (obstetricians and anaesthetists), nurses, midwives and allied health professionals in rural and remote Australia. All Aboriginal medical services throughout Australia are eligible to receive locum support.
We are looking for Aged Care Nurses to join our team of health professionals that are dedicated to alleviating the pressures of taking leave in rural and remote locations around Australia.
We offer placements up to 14 working days (categories 2-7) for personal and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) leave and up to 28 working days (categories 5-7) for placements supporting recreation and CPD leave of at least 7 days.
Rural LAP is not a recruitment agency. It is an Australian Government-funded service that focusses on supporting health professionals by administering an uncomplicated start-to-finish locum placement service.
Rural LAP offers the following allowances in addition to the hourly rate;
- $150 per working day incentive allowance,
- $100 per day travel and meal allowance,
- travel and accommodation arranged and paid for by Rural LAP.
