”The provision of high quality, patient focussed care by nurse practitioners to improve health outcomes for the patient, their family and the community”‘
— Tash Jennings, Nurse Practitioner
Nurse Practitioner Locum Solutions (NPLS) is a new innovative service able to deliver health care by senior, experienced and dedicated nurse practitioners. We have an extensive background in emergency and acute care, clinical leadership, research and academia. Our team have worked in all facets of emergency and generalist nursing streams and facilitate leadership among the health care team by role modelling clinical excellence and empowering staff to work at the best of their abilities.
We aim to deliver care where it is most needed and adapt services to suit the community requirements in rural and regional health services, whilst also passionately promoting the underutilised potential of the nurse practitioner role.
Our philosophy is to provide high quality, patient focused care by Nurse Practitioners to improve health outcomes for the patient, their family and the community.
We have a proven record of efficient and effective delivery of on call services to our existing clients.

"I knew the NP idea was going to be great but not this wonderful. Honestly had such a great weekend working with Tash. She was more than helpful, super nice and ball (sic) of knowledge. Could not of asked for a better experience. Patients were seen quickly, treated quicker and out the door before they would of normally got initial treatment. Patients had great feedback on the new model. I just wanted to let you know how amazing it was to work this weekend and I would be more than happy to work every weekend if this is going to be the standard!"

"I would like to thank you all it has been amazing working with you and I am learning a lot. It’s not a common practice these days to express to mentors how much they are appreciated and how wonderful it is to meet and work with such skilled nursing leaders. So I just wanted to express what an amazing job you guys have done supporting this facility in its difficult times and the impression meeting all of you has had on refreshing my enthusiasm and motivation. So thank you"

"Just letting you know that who ever was working on Saturday last week can suture like a champion! She did some suturing to a patient near their eye – was man vs lump of wood - has healed beautifully – doubt there will be much of a scar. Patient very happy with care."
Registered Nurse, Seymour Health
"My goodness – we have had amazing feedback - a UCC patient, EVERY single Nursing staff member (one who wants to get NP’s rock embroidered on her underwear), admin staff, even the accounts lady, comment favourably (more than favourably – they all want you to move to Seymour)"
