Nursing in general practice

Employing a practice nurse within a general practice can help reduce waiting times for patients and relieve workforce pressures on general practitioners.

The role of practice nurses in Australia has broadened considerable in recent years. This has largely been a result of the increased recognition of practice nursing as a specialist area, provision of government incentives and the introduction of Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) item numbers relevant to general practice nursing.
