CCRNs work as part of a two-member crew on low and medium acuity transports across metropolitan Melbourne or regional Victoria.  The ATA takes the lead on clinical matters throughout the patient’s transport while collaborating with their work partner and the Dispatcher on Duty on logistical decisions required.

CCRNs undertake a substantial amount of direct patient contact and care while their Patient Transport Officer (PTO) team mate manages the driving. Being able to adaptable to different situations and working well within a team of two is a key strength.

Our CCRN’s tell us that they enjoy the team dynamic and the connections they make with patients, and are proud contributors to the Flying Doctor Service care legacy.

Employment conditions:

  • Working on a roster of shift lengths varying from 8, 10 and 12 hours.
