Work Level Standards promote an understanding of the nursing and midwifery classification levels used within ACT Health to aid career planning, development and strategic workforce planning.
They describe the distinctive professional skills and responsibilities required of nurses and midwives at each classification level. They reflect the overall responsibilities and values expected of nurses and midwives, their contribution to ACT Health or Calvary Public Hospital Bruce, and the degree of complexity and responsibility of duties, skills and knowledge in accordance with classification level. Work Level Standards are cyclically reviewed by ACT Health through the NMO.
Work Level Standards are distinct from the professional standards for practice adopted by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia to regulate nurses and midwives nationally.
