After completing the course, course participants should be able to:

  • understand the basics about the COVID-19 virus, including how it is spread
  • describe what you can do to protect yourself and others
  • know what to do if you develop symptoms
  • know what to do if the person you are caring for develops symptoms
  • tell the difference between myths and facts of COVID-19.

The NSWNMA will continue to provide further updates for members as we receive them. Make sure you login to NSWNMA Member Central to see our members only FAQs here: online.nswnma.asn.au.
