Enrolled Nursing

Enrolled nurses play a key role in Australia’s health system, providing care and treatment in a range of settings, under the supervision of the registered nurse. Enrolled nurses (EN) complete a Diploma of Nursing qualification through an accredited state training provider, which leads to eligibility for graduates to apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA), for registration as an Enrolled Nurse (Division 2), General.

Over time, health care and clinical provision skill sets have evolved significantly and ENs work in an array of health care and social assistance sectors, displaying the practical skills of nursing with an increasing and defined scope. In the West Australian public health sector, through an application process, ENs working at an advanced level can be recognised with an Advanced Skill classification which broadens their scope to undertake more complex procedures at an increased pay scale.
