Some useful links to the NSW Health web information
If you are allocated to a NSW Health facility, you are required to complete the mandatory e-Learning modules on the NSW Health Learning Management System called ‘My Health Learning’. You will receive an email with a StaffLink ID 13 days before your placement which you can use to log into My Health Learning to complete the e-Learning. You must complete the mandatory e-Learning modules prior to the commencement of your placement.
Nursing and Midwifery students are also able to complete the module titled ‘Overview of the eMR for Nursing and Midwifery Students’.
Log into My Health Learning and ensure to check that you have completed all modules each time you are allocated to a NSW Health placement as some modules have an expiry and new modules may be added for completion from time to time.
If you are having trouble logging into My Health Learning AFTER you have received the automated email with your StaffLink ID and password, please contact the State-Wide Service Desk on 1300 28 55 33.
For other questions, please contact EHNSW-NSWHealthStudentOnlineAccounts@health.nsw.gov.au
