This stream is tailored towards applicants who are registered as an AQF Diploma level 5 Enrolled Nurse. It will give you the qualification you need to become a Registered Nurse (Division 1) with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.

You will at times be required to complete your placement at a pre-approved workplace in Perth if you need to practice in specialist areas, such as in critical care.
