With Nursing being such a popular course among international graduates, sharing a piece of our knowledge for easy decision-making.
THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ENROLLED NURSE (EN) AND REGISTERED NURSE (RN):
In Australia there are two types of nurses ----- Enrolled Nurse (EN) and Registered Nurse (RN).
The biggest difference is the qualification requirement for registration, the qualification requirement for RN registration is bachelor’s degree of Nursing, and for EN is Diploma of Nursing. In addition, an EN has less authority in a hospital, and they will work as part of a team, more than in a supervisory role. By contrast, RN will have more function in the development and creation of patient management and care plans.
THE BENEFIT OF EN PERMANENT VISA APPLICATION
The skill assessment application of EN requires no work experience, a student who finishes Diploma of Nursing course and achieves English ability can meet the requirement of skill assessment. English language ability requirement is & each or if using two test sittings, Overall IELTS 7.0 (with no band below 6.5), and equivalent result of PTE, OET or TOFEL. The student can combine 2 test results to meet the requirement. Otherwise, the student needs to provide 5 years' full-time study evidence to waive the language requirement.
As EN is on the list of MLTSSL, EN student are not able to apply for the visa of 485 and 189, and some states are not open the state sponsorship to EN students. South Australia's policy should be the friendliest for the EN students, and 190 and 491 sponsorships are open for SA Diploma of nursing graduates.
