What will I learn?

Opportunities in the health sector continue to grow right across the country, with high employment outcomes for nursing graduates… so it’s a great time to start your career in this area!

This course is the essential minimum requirement to work as an Enrolled Nurse in Australia and will give you the opportunity to develop advanced skills in performing clinical assessments, contributing to the care of people with complex needs, administering and monitoring medications and IV therapy, effectively communicating with patients and colleagues, plus a host of other duties. You’ll also learn to implement and monitor care for people with mental health conditions, and acute and chronic health problems, as well as how to care for older people and patients with complex needs.

On successful completion of the theoretical and practical simulation training components in each stage of the course, you will have the opportunity to undertake a clinical placement in a health care facility or hospital where you will get to use your new skills in the real world. You will be required to work shifts include morning or evening shifts, Monday to Friday, and you will be expected to manage family and work commitments in order to complete your shifts.

To satisfy Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency requirements for your registration and qualification, you will need to successfully undertake a minimum of 400 hours of work placement. But you won’t have to do it alone! Our highly experienced teaching team of industry professionals will be there to support your learning every step of the way – both in-class and out on placement.
