Enrolled Nursing

A nursing qualification from North Metropolitan TAFE will see you work as an enrolled nurse in a range of health care settings including hospitals, health clinics, community organisations or residential care. It is a diverse, challenging and rewarding career, as nurses make a real difference to the comfort and care of patients every day. 

By working in our simulated hospital wards and outreach clinic, you will gain knowledge and skills that will enable you to assess and provide nursing care to clients, including how to observe and measure vital signs, and assist patients with everyday activities.
 You will develop essential effective communication skills and learn to work with and care for people from different backgrounds.

 

Places in Nursing courses are in high demand. If you do not gain a place in the course of your choice, we offer alternative pathways to help you.  We also offer options for other careers in the Health industry.

Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) language skills registration standard (2019)

The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia requires all applicants for initial registration to demonstrate English language skills to be suitable for registration.

This registration standard sets out how an applicant for registration can demonstrate to the Board that their competency in speaking and communicating in English is sufficient to practise nursing and/or midwifery.

There are three (3) pathways that may be used in the demonstration of English language competence for registration, which must also be demonstrated prior to commencing the course, including:

  • Primary Language Pathway
  • English Language Test Pathway, or
  • Extended Education Pathway

The Primary Language Pathway - satisfactory completion at least six years of primary and secondary education taught and assessed in English in one of the recognised countries, including at least two years between years 7 and 12.

Extended Education Pathway - at least five years continuous (full time equivalent) combined secondary and/or tertiary and/or vocational education taught and assessed solely in English, in one of the recognised countries.

English Language Test Pathway - you will need to take an approved English language test to demonstrate that you meet the standard through if you are not able to meet the requirements of either the Primary Language or Extended Education Pathway.
