Sexual Health Competencies for Primary Health Nurses

An interactive version of the Sexual Health Competency Standards for primary health care nurses is now available on STI Programs Unit (STIPU)'swebsite. This version allows you to move between different sections of the standards and save to your desktop a copy of the standards that you can complete electronically.

To support the standards, two new additional documents have been developed. Assessor Guidelines which outlines the process for assessment against the sexual health competency standards for both the peer assessor and primary health care nurse and examples of the practice skills that the primary health care nurse is required to meet.

Primary health care nurses have expressed an interest in undertaking a clinical attachment in their local sexual health service. STIPU have developed a resource outlining the step by step process available here.
