Our 12 month program is flexible and tailored for you with two rotations.

Educational support

The enrolled nurse programs begin with extensive orientation. This is designed to prepare you for clinical work and introduce you to nursing at Epworth. The program includes a structured theoretical component, consisting of five professional development days throughout the year. These are focused on professional issues as well as providing ongoing education to expand your scope of practice. It is our expectation that successful applicants will actively seek out learning opportunities.

Work hours

Graduates are employed on a part-time basis (min four days per week). We encourage flexibility in rostering and it is expected you will work day, evening, weekends and some night duty shifts.

Professional development

The program provides ample opportunities for graduates to undertake study towards further qualifications. On successful completion of the program, opportunities for ongoing permanent employment at Epworth are also available.
