What are our goals?

  • To nurture and provide support and guidance for all students coming through the MAP program.
  • To foster clinical independence in MAP students
  • For the student to be a part of our caring health team at Peninsula Health
  • To support our Peninsula Health staff, developing the skills they need to better teach the student and provide them with a dynamic placement

What do we have to offer?

  • Designated places for each year group
  • Acute Medical/Surgical at Frankston and Rosebud Hospitals
  • The opportunity to be placed in Specialty areas at Frankston and Rosebud Hospitals
  • The chance to do clinical placements in a location close to university and home

Why MAP?

The benefits to the student in the MAP program include:

  • Familiarity with the environment, staff, routine and daily workings of the organisation
  • The student is empowered to take control of their own learning needs
  • Development of a relationship between the Clinical Associate Teachers which allows them to tailor the placement according to the student’s career goals and strengths
  • Ensures students are well positioned for a Graduate Nurse Program with Peninsula Health
  • A safe environment conducive to learning
  • Great convenient location – only a few minutes from Monash University
