Study a La Trobe Bachelor of Nursing (Enrolled Nurse) with Chisholm

La Trobe University's Bachelor of Nursing (Enrolled Nurse) is an articulated pathway for students who have successfully completed Chisholm's Diploma of Nursing and registered as an Enrolled Nurse with APHRA, subject to availability.

This means that on successful completion of your diploma, you will pathway into year two of the Bachelor of Nursing (Enrolled Nurse).

In the Bachelor of Nursing (Enrolled Nurse), you will gain clinical nursing experience and learn how to support patients and lead nursing care across the life span through face-to-face workshops and clinical sessions.

Alongside the clinical experience, you will study the requirements for the transition to the role of registered nurse, primary health care, health priorities and nursing research. You will also undertake specialised subjects including mental health nursing, recognising and responding to the deteriorating patient and nursing people with chronic illnesses.

The final subjects in the curriculum aim to support your transition to Registered Nurse by promoting consolidation and reflection on your clinical practice and engagement in professional nursing. These subjects will assist you to manage time, lead teams, manage caseloads and make ethical clinical decisions with a compassionate and caring approach.

You will be required to complete supervised clinical placements as part of this course.
