Enrolled Nursing IRC

The Enrolled Nursing qualifications were last endorsed in December 2015 and are included in the HLT Health Training Package.

In 2012, there were 298,066 enrolled nurses (that is, registered Enrolled Nurses and Midwives) working in Australia.

Organisations within the sector include private and public organisations and can range from large to small organisations such as hospitals, aged-care facilities, community health practices, general medical practices, after-hour clinics and other health care settings.


Enrolled Nurses work under the direction or supervision of a Registered Nurse. They assist in providing preventive, curative and rehabilitative nursing care.

A graduate from a Diploma of Nursing program approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) is able to apply for registration with the NMBA as an Enrolled Nurse.
