Enrolled Nurse
Administration Upgrade


EQUALS is pleased to offer a tailored program designed specifically for currently registered Enrolled Nurses who completed their Program of Study prior to 2008 and/or have the notation ‘Does not hold Board-approved qualification in administration of medicines’ placed on their registration with AHPRA.

AHPRA issued a fact sheet in March 2015 for Enrolled Nurses & Medicine Administration which can be accessed here.

As per AHPRA’s fact sheet, the notation on your registration can be removed with evidence of successful completion of the unit HLTENN007: Administer and monitor medicines and intravenous therapy.

This program may be completed through a Recognition of Prior Learning pathway, or through training in the entire unit.

On Campus Intensive

Students enrolled in this program will be required to attend 5 consecutive days of oncampus practical and simulation training at the Adelaide campus.  It is important that students do not enrol unless they are able to meet this requirement.  Please check with the Admissions team regarding the next oncampus training dates.


EQUALS can offer an assessment pathway that includes an assessment of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) plus relevant gap training where applicable.

Where assessment of prior learning results in the offer of formal RPL for the full unit, the relevant unit fee will be reduced by 30%.

We invite you to make contact with us to discuss your pathway. Nurses who are currently working as Enrolled Nurses are encouraged to seek RPL in consultation with the Program Manager.


If you are currently working as an Enrolled Nurse, we encourage you to seek the support of your employer in the process of Recognition of Prior Learning, plus gap training & assessment where required.

If you are not currently working in industry you will be required to demonstrate practical skills in a workplace. Your Program Manager will discuss this with you in consultation with EQUALS’ Vocational Placement Coordinator.


Please contact us at admissions@equals.edu.au to enquire.


Current and valid Provide First Aid certificate, Department of Communities & Social Inclusion (DCSI) Screening Checks for working with Vulnerable People, with Children, and in the Aged Care Sector, & Physical Fitness are required for this program.

If you do not hold a current DCSI check, you are required to apply through DCSI at the time of application for enrolment at EQUALS. A DCSI check must be acquired prior to industry placement. Visit http://www.dcsi.sa.gov.au/services/screening for further information.

Please note that the outcome of your DCSI screening check may affect student clinic participation opportunities, and that this is at the discretion of EQUALS.

A First Aid certificate is a pre-requisite for student clinic. You will complete the unit early in your first study period.
