Are you looking for a career change? Perhaps thought about studying nursing? Well, now is the time do it!

The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation (ANMF) Tasmanian Branch established the Health Education and Research Centre (HERC) in Hobart in 2013 in order to provide accessible, high-quality training for health professionals.

The HLT54121 Diploma of Nursing reflects the role of an Enrolled Nurse working under supervision of a Registered Nurse and covers the application of skills and knowledge required to undertake your role competently and professionally within a variety of health care settings.

The 18 months is comprised of face-to-face, online learning, and structured work placement of 12 weeks in total. This course requires full time study – two days per week of face-to-face learning (9am to 3pm), plus the equivalent of three days per week self-directed learning.

There are 25 units in this course – 20 compulsory units and five electives. To achieve this qualification, students are also required to complete a minimum of 400 hours of successful clinical placement in a variety of healthcare settings.

Once qualified you will be eligible to apply to AHPRA for registration as an Enrolled Nurse.

HERC’s nationally accredited training will provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to kick-start your career in the health industry. Students at HERC have successfully graduated with widely accepted qualifications at Certificate III and Diploma levels.

Once you have your initial qualification, HERC also offers opportunities to meet your continuing professional development (CPD) needs.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and culturally, socially and linguistically diverse background applicants are encouraged to apply.

We continue to offer enrolments in our programs, and you are welcome to contact us via email info@herc. tas.edu.au or phone 6223 6777 and press option 2 if you have queries about how we can meet your educational needs.
