Course overview

The Bachelor of Nursing Enrolled Nurse to Registered Nurse Pathway is specifically designed for enrolled nurses to become registered nurses in just two years.

Specialist conversion units lead into units that build knowledge in professional nursing, biological sciences and social sciences, building on your professional experience and previous study. You’ll have the opportunity to specialise in specific clinical areas of interest based on availability and supervisory facilities and learn in state-of-the-art facilities with interactive models and simulation laboratories.

This pathway program is for Enrolled Nurses who are graduates of an ANMAC-approved HLT51612 Diploma in Nursing (Enrolled-Division 2 Nursing) or HLT54115 Diploma of Nursing. The course requires current Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) registration as an Enrolled Nurse.

Please note: This course requires students to attend intensive workshops at the Gold Coast, Lismore or Coffs Harbour campus.

The World Health Organization (WHO) says the world needs 9 million more nurses and midwives if it is to achieve universal health coverage by 2030. This year we are joining the WHO in celebrating the Year of the Nurse and Midwife, by sharing the stories and successes of the Southern Cross nursing and midwifery community.
