Do you have Registered Undergraduate Student of Nursing (RUSON) or Registered Undergraduate Student of Midwifery (RUSOM) working in your ward, unit or health service?
With growing numbers of RUSONs/RUSOMs, ANMF members are asked to invite their new colleagues to join ANMF, or upgrade their student membership to a ‘working student’.
By inviting them to join, you can ensure they are protected and can access all the services and benefits they may need, including:
- Professional indemnity & public liability insurance up to $10m
- Good Samaritan insurance
- Representation for workplace issues
- Professional advice
- Legal advice (conditions apply)
- Annual $400 credit for online modules on the CPD Portal
Joining the ANMF is the best protection a RUSON/RUSOM can have. Member benefits are only provided to full financial members at the time of the incident for which they are seeking assistance.
There are currently over 40 RUSON/RUSOM programs throughout Victoria. Prior to the pandemic, there were six health services who had implemented the model.
