Nursing in rural and remote areas is diverse, challenging and rewarding. You
can be almost certain that wherever you go you will gain new skills that will
also be useful and relevant later in your professional life and in other settings.
Wherever you work in rural and remote areas you will need expertise and
confi dence in cross-cultural issues and other local norms and customs you

Remote areas can present quite unique experiences and you may have less
