Top reasons to study an EN to RN pathway

Earn while you learn

A Diploma of Nursing (HLT54121) is the minimum requirement to work as an enrolled nurse. Having this qualification under your belt means you could use your skills and knowledge to start working in your industry while you finish off your degree to become a registered nurse.

Designed by nurses for nurses

Our educators are fully trained and qualified nurses who regularly return to industry to keep their skills and knowledge current, giving you confidence that you're learning from the best. Drawing on their expertise, our teachers have worked with industry and other stakeholders to ensure the Bachelor of Nursing is not only fit for purpose but reflect the needs of that same industry that's ever evolving.

Supportive teachers

Speaking of our teachers, they really are the best at what they do. They deliver educational excellence by encouraging and mentoring you throughout your nursing studies. Nursing graduate Anthea Byers experienced this firsthand, sharing how her teachers believed in her, even when she didn't.

"I told them that I didn't feel like I was good enough and they would sit me down and they would say, 'You've got this Anthea.' And they gave me the confidence that I needed to get through, so I can't thank them enough."


Flexible, hands-on education

Thanks to our expert educators and state-of-the-art training facilities, our Bachelor of Nursing combines hands-on learning with uni thinking. Best of all, our degree is flexible, allowing you to learn online and on campus.
