To: The aged care minister
don't forget about enrolled nurses
Aged care workers have won major reforms to improve quality care for older Australians. New laws will increase care time for residents, and require a registered nurse on duty 24/7 in residential aged care facilities.
As we work to fix the broken aged care sector, we need to make sure the enrolled nurses who have been holding up the aged care system are not left behind by these important changes.
Enrolled nurses are the backbone of aged care.
Enrolled nurses across the country are calling on Aged Care Minister Anika Wells to meet and discuss what the laws will mean for us.
Do you agree that enrolled nurses play a vital role in delivering quality aged care?
