Progression from Diploma of Nursing
If you are progressing from the Diploma of Nursing, it is recommended that you are registered as an enrolled nurse with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), the Nursing and Midwifery Board. Taking this step verifies your prior study so academic credit can be awarded towards your bachelor degree, allowing you to commence in the second year of the course. If you are not currently registered, please apply now and proceed with your enrolment.
You can either provide certified copies of your AHPRA registration to firstname.lastname@example.org or come into our HE Nursing offices at the Wantirna campus (WS building) to present your registration documentation in person. You must provide your AHPRA registration by Monday 10 February 2020 to be ready for course commencement.
If you have received credit exemptions and are starting in year 2 of the Bachelor of Nursing in Semester 1 2020, please note that your course commencement date is Monday 10 February. This earlier commencement date is due to a mandatory unit you must study before you complete your placement.
