Professional Experience Placements (PEP) in New South Wales are managed by the NSW PEP Team. Within the College of Health and Medicine, we are unique as we are the only PEP Team working across three schools: School of Health Sciences, School of Medicine and School of Nursing.
Our key local courses are undergraduate nursing and paramedicine; and post-graduate child and family health nursing. We also place laboratory medicine students from Tasmania throughout NSW and provide opportunities for selected nursing students to attend placement in regional NSW. International paramedic student placements are coordinated through our office. We also provide advice to our Tasmanian colleagues regarding NSW placements.
In line with College of Health and medicine processes and procedural guidelines, we ensure all students are safe to enter the practice environment, are placed according to curriculum requirements, and are supported in accordance with accreditation guidelines. We welcome all feedback from students, staff and industry partners to continually improve the placement experience for all stakeholders.
