Nursing ambition with TAFE NSW

"TAFE NSW is the perfect starting point for people of all levels, because the teachers are supportive and will go out of their way to help you."

Christine Bright

"TAFE NSW is the perfect starting point for people of all levels, because the teachers are supportive and will go out of their way to help you."

After having children and working part-time in a doctor’s surgery, Carcoar’s Christine Bright knew she wanted to pursue her passion of becoming a nurse. So Christine studied a Diploma of Nursing at TAFE NSW Orange, on her way to securing her dream job as an Enrolled Nurse at Blayney Hospital.  

“I always wanted to be qualified in something but I left school early,” Christine said.

But it wasn’t just the support that mattered in Christine’s journey. “I will never forget the practical skills I learnt,” she said, with her TAFE NSW studies giving her the confidence to be a wonderful nurse and advocate for her patients.

What job opportunities could a nursing course lead to?

Whether you are just starting your healthcare journey, or you are an enrolled nurse looking to gain additional nursing qualifications, a TAFE NSW nursing course can offer you the chance to focus on your passion and help you progress your care sector career.

There are many types of nurses in the industry and our courses are formulated to give you the practical skills and background knowledge you need to provide support to those in care, hospitals, welfare, and community settings.

Develop your skills across a wide range of courses, at a level to suit your needs. From aged care, disability work, home and community care, and general nursing, TAFE NSW courses and qualifications can lead to a variety of career pathways and job opportunities, in roles like:

  • Homecare worker
  • Enrolled nurse
  • Nurse manager
  • Nursing support worker
  • Nursing assistant

A nursing assistant’s responsibilities include, but are not limited to, reporting changes in patients’condition, following therapy plans, and assisting patients in their personal care and emotional needs.

Enrolled nurses share similar duties to nursing assistants and in addition, perform more complex responsibilities, such as giving medications, under the supervision of registered nurses. On average, an enrolled nurse in Australia can earn a weekly salary of $1,426. The minimum course requirement to become an enrolled nurse is the Diploma of Nursing.

From short courses in nursing, online study options, and work placement opportunities, all our care sector courses, diplomas, and certificates are nationally accredited.
