The Rural High School Visit (RHSV) program is an NRHSN initiative run nationally by Rural Health Clubs in each state and territory. Clubs visit rural and remote high schools throughout their state or territory to promote health careers to rural high school students. Research indicates that students from the bush are more likely to return to a rural setting to practice after graduating.
The Rural High School Visit's Kit can be found by clicking here. RHSV resources can be found in the login section of the NRHSN website here.
The RHSV website is a great resource that can be used by Rural Health Club members, high schools, high school students and parents. It is also a great opportunity to advertise your Club's Rural High School Visit's so that other Club's can join in as well as checking to see what visit's that your club might like to link up with. Contact us to let us know what RHSV's your RHC are going on next.
NRHSN members have fantastic experiences while participating in RHSVs - so make sure to get involved! To read about some of StARRH (previously TEHC) member experiences on NT RHSVs click the links below, and there are many more stories on the RHSV website.
The NRHSN had a report titled Rural Health Career Promotion published in the Career Education Association of Victoria (CEAV) November 2006 edition News Journal. This came after consultation with the CEAV during the research stage of the RHSV review.
