Did you know you can “convert” your Enrolled Nurse (Division 2) training to a Nursing Degree to become a Registered Nurse?
It’s not for everybody but some Enrolled Nurse (Division 2) want to go on and do the further study required.
Abridged courses (generally two years long) designed to upgrade Enrolled Nurses (Division 2) to Bachelor degrees in Nursing are available.
You may be able to get individual or block credit towards a Bachelor degree in Nursing and some credit may be awarded towards a Bachelor of Midwifery – how much depends on the particular course.
University Contacts – look at the course details and contact the course coordinator – they can advise you about entry requirements and credit processes.
For a full list of the approved courses there is an “Approved Course List” on the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia website.
