The Diploma of Nursing is the recognised qualification to become an Enrolled Nurse (Division 2). This course reflects the role of an enrolled nurse working under the supervision of a registered nurse.
With a combination of on-campus training and practical placement, you'll learn to support people through their daily tasks, perform complex interventions, promote healthy living practices, and support the emotional and psychological needs of your patients.
Enrolled nurses work as members of multidisciplinary teams, collaborating with medical and allied health staff. You'll work with patients, clients, and their families and care for people during some of the most challenging times in their lives.
A graduate from a Diploma of Nursing program approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) is able to apply for registration with the NMBA as an enrolled nurse.
