Are you interested in a career in health but don’t know where to start?

The Certificate IV in Preparation for Health and Nursing Studies will give you a sound knowledge about the human body and health, as well as the study skills to support your further learning.

As well as being a great starting point, the course is also great stepping stone between Certificate III qualifications such as Health Service Assistance, Allied Health Assistance and towards Diploma qualifications like Enrolled Nursing.
