Late sister Tracey Jones was not just a CEO of the company but was a kind and caring registered nurse. She had an extensive experience in nursing with various positions such as a director of nursing and an educator who felt a need and demand of assistance in nursing. However, there was hardly a professional training course at that time to be able to work as an assistance in Nursing.
Late sister Tracey Jones, first commenced the course in 1990 after witnessing a lack of knowledge and skills delivering care to our frail and aged. Our course was the first Assistant in Nursing (AIN) Course to enter the training arena and ANTS seeks constant feedback to ensure that we address the training needs of both nursing facilities and the community.
She focused on not only highly qualified and experienced trainers, but also currently work in their training field and industry. As such our trainers, teachers include Registered Nurses, Doctors with well experience in the industry.
We pride ourselves on our reputation as a preferred provider, our great employment results and our honest transparent processes, which we have built on since the first course in 1990.
Late Sister Tracey Jones was a founder of Australian Nursing and Training Services and for the first time, she wrote the Assistance Nursing Course. After completing own Nursing and University training, she saw a huge need for AIN/Carer training in Australia (as there was no such training) and decided to do something about it, to raise the standard of care given to our loved ones. She insisted that it was not only unfair to the clients, but unfair and unsafe for the caring staff as well.
Prior to any AIN training being available, Registered Nurses(RNs) had a hard enough job without supervising carers that were hired unskilled. The RNs were not usually educators and therefore with no training experience, had to provide training on the job to these unskilled carers, as well as coping with their own busy job. An unfair situation for all.
It took late Sister Tracey 5 years to write the curriculum in the 1980′s. It was called an “Assistant in Nursing Certificate”. For many years this was the only recognised AIN Certificate available.
Many others have used Tracey’s initiative, and these days there are many AIN courses available nationally.
The late Sister Jones said” that doesn’t matter” as her purpose was to train the carers and raise the standard of care given nationally as well as provide jobs, which she has done for several thousands of people.
