The Diploma of Nursing is an 18-month course which will provide you with the knowledge, skills and attributes for practice as an Enrolled Nurse. The Diploma of Nursing can also provide you with entry into the second year of the Bachelor of Nursing at the University of Wollongong. Nursing students graduate with a diverse range of real, practical skills ready for a rewarding career with a world of opportunities. This course is designed for domestic and international students studying in Australia, face-to-face at the UOW Wollongong campus location.
This course has been superseded and replaced by a non-equivalent training product, following a review of the Health Training Package. Enrolments will continue to be accepted into this course in 2022. From 2023, enrolments will be accepted into the replacement Diploma of Nursing (pending ASQA approval). Information about the replacement course will be made available following ASQA approval. UOW College Australia will contact students who may need to be transitioned to the replacement qualification, as required.
