Career opportunities include working as an Enrolled Nurse. Enrolled Nurses work under the direction and supervision of registered nurses and are employed across a variety of health care contexts including hospital, community, residential, mental health, rehabilitation, rural and remote settings.
To work as a nurse in Australia, you must be registered with the NMBA through the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
Note: Completion of a TAFE SA course does not guarantee an employment outcome. Formal requirements other than educational qualifications (eg licensing, professional registration), may apply to some occupations.
