Overview

As a nursing student at EQUALS, you will have access to a supportive learning environment where care and attention is given to your individual needs.  Credit for previous nursing or health experience may apply.

The enrolled nurse (EN) works with the registered nurse (RN) as part of the health care team and demonstrates competence in the provision of person-centred care. Core practice generally requires the enrolled nurse to work under the direct or indirect supervision of the registered nurse. At all times, the enrolled nurse retains responsibility for his/her actions and remains accountable in providing delegated nursing care. (NBMA Enrolled Nurse Standards for Practice 2016)

EQUALS graduates benefit from quality employment pathways and/or may build onto their Diploma by continuing onto undergraduate university studies at any number of Australian universities. This Diploma course will provide 12 months credit off most undergraduate nursing degrees (subject to approval).
