  • This pathway program is for Enrolled Nurses – graduates of the
    HLT51612 Diploma in Nursing (Enrolled Division 2 Nursing) or
    equivalent qualification, from 2012 onwards. The course requires current AHPRA (Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency) registration as an Enrolled Nurse. A specifically designed course of study acknowledges previous learning and enables Enrolled Nurses to complete the Bachelor degree in two years full-time. Students who qualify for admission will receive advanced standing (credit) in recognition of their diploma study and complete the equivalent of four specifically designed conversion units alongside the remaining second-year units of study.

    Major areas of study:
    The course is responsive to contemporary nursing practices
    and provides content and clinical experiences similar to the
    Bachelor of Nursing.

    Professional recognition:
    The degree is accredited by the Australian Nursing and
    Midwifery Accreditation Council and provides the necessary
    qualification for graduates to be eligible to become a Registered Nurse in Australia.

    Professional placement:
    Supervised clinical placements (totalling 600 hours) provide
    students with experiences of nursing in settings relevant
    to their areas of study in public and private hospitals and
    health agencies. This may include acute and low care health
    facilities; community settings; mental health facilities;
    extended residential aged care; GP clinics; health promotion
    and education; intensive care; health clinics; accident and
    emergency; palliative care; primary health care settings and
    related nursing and health services within metropolitan, regional
    and rural areas throughout New South Wales and Queensland.
    Students may be able to undertake national and international
    clinical placements.
