Event Description

The Southwestern MNCYN’s Paediatric Advancement Program has developed a Regional Paediatric Orientation (RPO) to promote the consistent delivery of safe, quality paediatric care across our region.

Core paediatric nursing competencies will facilitate learners to develop the theoretical knowledge required to support care for paediatric patients in the region.


The self-directed learning packages are based on current best-practice guidelines. The RPO program is available online for learners to work through at their own pace.  Learners have 45-days to complete the course.  Once you have completed the program, you will no longer be able to view the content or access the course.  The content cannot be printed due to copyright.

 Please note, this is not a credit course.


Registration is on a first come, first served basis. There are a limited number of spots per session, therefore, you may be placed on a waiting list. If that occurs, you will be contacted when a spot becomes available.
