• Dissolve recency of practise requirements for nurses
    There is obviously a massive need for more registered nurses in the healthcare system that is under an overwhelming strain. More nurses may return to their profession if given an opportunity. It does not make sense that 10 years should be a magic timeframe that you suddenly have no ability to perform your duties. If you can pass the re-entry program then surely that should enough to satisfy the Nurses board that they are safe to practise.

  • Bachelor of Nursing degree reform
    An astonishing number of students are experiencing difficulties that are often leading to repeating units and extending the period of time to complete this degree. The University has consistently failed to address concerns raised by students, promising changes that do not occur. Many students are having to apply for review of marks with astonishing results. The purpose of this petition is to advocate for our student body, collectively gather our concerns and to advocate for an investigation into this University that is failing to provide us with a meaningful education that prepares us to transition into the workforce as Registered Nurses. Bachelor of Nursing students studying through UTAS are reporting feeling unprepared to venture into practical placement with a lack of exposure and teaching of common procedures. There is concern that the impact of this not only effects us as future RN’s but also poses a risk to patient safety.

  • Parks and Paths for Carlton/Dodges
    We have no local parks, reserves or footpaths, while council areas such as Clarence sets the standard. We need reserves and parks for children, parents and grandparents - a common area to value. We need footpaths for safety as mothers with strollers are forced to walk on the busy roads in the area.

  • Save Our Water
    Our community of Woorabinda is reliant on good quality water for our needs and having a mining company take what the want will severely deplete the Dawson River water supply.

  • COVID-19- Endgame C (lockdown-stop and restart) needs to happen to save lives
    While things remain open, people will gather. While schools remain open, kids will go. They may not get very sick, but they can bring it home to those who will. Teachers can also contract it. This is not a practice run. This is happening. We need to let the government know that our lives are important. This is supported by the following article. Please read this article. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-03-21/coronavirus-the-case-for-endgame-c-stop-almost-everything/12077096?utm_medium=spredfast&utm_content=sf231766232&utm_campaign=abc_news&utm_source=m.facebook.com&sf231766232=1&fbclid=IwAR0wdiRQAbRjayUz2Ymawy9jPCn2rOvZCH7BXHGGP9mIQqZurBtPTfENx9w We must choose Endgame C, and choose it quickly. 7 days ago we had only 250 cases at the end of that day- last Sunday. Now we have upwards of 1100 cases. That’s a huge increase- in one week. By that logic, next Sunday, we’ll have 4000 cases. But wait, that’s if it increases at a steady rate, which it doesn’t. The numbers are old data anyway. If we know about these 1000 cases now, a week ago they were still there, we just didn’t know about them yet, walking around sharing Covid-19 with friends and family. So realistically we have at least 4000 people out there walking around without knowing they have it, sharing it with others. If they share it with only 4 other people- well, you can do the Maths. The only option here is Endgame C. The Prime Minister thinks people will make smart choices. He has too much faith in people. They will not comply if simply asked to. We saw that at Bondi. There need to be strict instructions and rules. I am not alone. Most of Australia wants to go into lockdown, but won’t unless instructed to do so. The only option is lockdown for 8-12 weeks. Small price to pay really.
