Cadetship and TPP Programs – National Resource

Recruitment and retention

Project Overview

The Congress of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nurses and Midwives (CATSINaM) has developed a national resource on cadetship and transition to professional practice (graduate) programs to highlight what supports the successful participation of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander nurses and midwives in these programs. Success means it is a culturally safe experience for participants, they complete the program and stay in the health workforce.

The resource is inclusive of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students involved in a range of health professional training and builds on existing good practice. The hope is that the national resource will:

  • encourage greater uptake of dedicated programs on a national basis
  • encourage the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health sector to be involved in their own or collaborative cadetship and/or graduate programs.
