The Practice Nurse Incentive Program (PNIP) guidelines have been updated.
On 1 May 2017, the updated Practice Nurse Incentive Program (PNIP) guidelines come into effect. The guidelines tell you how the program works and what you need to do to apply or continue to be eligible.
Important changes include:
- PNIP payments aren’t available for after hours services that give care outside normal hours of general practice
- PNIP payments aren’t payable to Medical deputising services
- supervising arrangements must be documented if the employer of an enrolled nurse and a registered nurse are different.
