Rehabilitation nursing in Australia: a valid and valued specialty.

Author information

Nursing Research and Development Unit, University of Western Sydney/Royal Rehabilitation Centre.


While rehabilitation nursing has been largely overlooked in Australia, it is becoming more visible. Its invisible nature is highlighted when a comparison to acute care nursing is made. However, through the activities of the rehabilitation nurses' professional nursing organisation and recent research there is a growing awareness of the nature of rehabilitation. That rehabilitation does not fit the current classifications for nursing specialties is also highlighted as a problem. This paper aims to expose rehabilitation nursing as a valid and valued specialty.
