Its main campus is located in Sydney and the satellite campuses are located in Darwin and Cairns. NTN has made agreements with three private hospitals in Sydney, Darwin and Cairns to provide the internship and training to the students of the nursing school. All three priv ate hospitals and the main and satellite campuses of NTN are connected to the Internet. Lecture, tutorial and laboratory classes are conducted in the campus in Sydney and they are live -video streamed to the satellite campuses forming a virtual classroom. The instructors and the students in the satellite campuses can directly communicate with the lecturer in the Sydney campus when a virtual class is in progress. At any time, there will be at most 200 students in the main campus and a maximum of 100 students in each satellite campus participating in a virtual class. However, these numbers are expected to double within the next couple of years. NTN provides a telemedicine and healthcare service to the community in a radius of about 200km from each satellite ca mpus by having a small mobile team of doctors and nursing students. The mobile team in Darwin as well as in Cairns provide consultations and services to the needy patients at their homes. These mobile teams travel around in specially equipped vehicles call ed the home -care vehicles. The mobile teams can scan/photograph and send the reports of the patients immediately to the corresponding private hospital and communicate directly with the medical staff there via the networks in the home -care vehicles. NTN re cently appointed staff for its Information Security Division headed by a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) to design and launch an information security program .
