This qualification reflects the role of an enrolled nurse working under supervision of a registered nurse. The delivery of the Diploma of Nursing is designed to focus on nursing as a profession and as such will offer a holistic and person-centred care approach to nursing. The program is designed to focus on nursing as part of a contextualised, integrated and coordinated multidisciplinary approach to contemporary health care. It is therefore designed in explicit recognition of the emerging nature of health care delivery and will cover four areas in the health industry: Aged Care, Mental Health, Acute Care and Community/Specialist Care. This is in light of the impact of rapidly changing medical and information technologies and consumer demands. A patient centred care approach should underpin this qualification with relevant competencies that relate to the different stages of life identified within the units.
This qualification leads to employment as an Enrolled Nurse.
