Program Description

Certificate IV in Nursing

Certificate IV in Nursing

The program addresses skills shortages in the Health Care sector. The program will prepare graduates to successfully find employment nationally as an Enrolled Nurse. Global professional employment opportunities will depend on the individual country recognition of the Enrolled Nurse qualification. The diverse courses and clinical placements offered enable the graduates to seek employment in a variety of nursing disciplines.

This nationally recognised vocational education and training (VET) qualification is competency-based.

This means that it is designed to enable you to develop the practical skills and knowledge (competency) needed to perform the duties and tasks in the job you are training for. Assessment in a competency-based program is about being able to demonstrate that you have developed these practical skills and areas of knowledge, and that you can perform at the standard required in the job. This could involve showing an assessor how you plan and carry out tasks, and explaining to the assessor how you know what you are doing. It could also involve completing a project and presenting a report on the process and outcomes. If you are working, your work supervisor may provide the assessor with a report on your competency.

Approach to learning and assessment

If you have a long term medical condition, disability and/or other form of disadvantage it may be possible to negotiate to vary aspects of the learning or assessment methods. You can contact the program coordinator or the Disability Liaison Unit if you would like to find out more.
