Best practice resources


The College offers a series of resources to our members and the public, among them our Mental Health Nursing Practice Standards, General Practice Standards, and the Scope of Practice.


We also provide some advice to mental health nurses that work in private practice and would like to claim Medicare Benefits Schedule item numbers. Since the cessation of the Mental Health Nursing Incentive Program (MHNIP) these are unfortunately very limited.
