Clinical Accreditation Programs (CAPs) are educational programs offered by public and private hospitals, local health districts and other agencies that have had their programs accredited and awarded credit by the university.
Recognition of prior learning
If you are a student that has completed an accredited CAP, you're eligible to be granted recognition of prior learning (RPL) and subsequent subject exemption from relevant postgraduate health courses.
Here's how to do it:
- Apply for a postgraduate health course, whether at a Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma or Masters level.
- During your course application, apply for RPL with all supporting documentation to the Student Centre.
- You will be granted an exemption from a specified subject in the program
Seek accreditation as a CAP
If you're interested in implementing a CAP into your healthcare facility or unit, please contact Gail Forrest, the Director of PG Nursing Studies.
