Entrance Requirements

To gain entry into the Diploma of Nursing, there are two distinct requirements that need to be met.

1. Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) entry requirements

Applicants must be able to demonstrate that they meet the minimum LLN entry requirements, demonstrating achievement of an Australian Core Skills Framework Exit Level 3 (that being a Certificate IV or above) as a minimum. This can be demonstrated via various means, including:

The LLN test
The Core Skills Profile for Adults (CSPA) is an interactive online tool designed to identify and measure an individual's foundation skills level. Participants who undertake this assessment must have an exit level three (that being a Certificate IV) against the Australian Core Skills Framework in both reading and numeracy.

School leaver
Applicants with English as a primary language who have successfully completed an Australian grade/year 12 certificate that includes an English subject need only undertake the numeracy component of the LLN test. In Western Australia the year 12 certificate is referee to as the WACE (Western Australian Certificate of Education).

Non-school leaver
All non-school leaver applicants must complete the CSPA. This test will be administered by NR TAFE on application to the program. This is an online interactive test that can be taken on campus or at home on your own device. The log in for this test will be sent to applicants during the application process.

2. Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) English language competency

Applicants must also provide evidence that they have met the minimum English Language Competency set out by the NMBA prior to commencing in the Diploma of Nursing.

What do I need to do?
You need to have met one of the following criteria:

  • At admission to the program the applicant has English as their primary language and can demonstrate they have attended and satisfactory completed at least six years of primary and secondary education (at least two years must be between years 7 to 12) taught and assessed in English in one of the recognised English speaking countries that meet the NMBA requirements, These countries are: New Zealand, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Canada (excluding French Canadian territories), Republic of Ireland and South Africa.

OR

  • At the time of applying to study in the Diploma of Nursing the applicant must be able to provide evidence that they have evidence of three and a half (3.5) years (full time equivalent) of education taught and assessed in English in one of the recognised countries. This would then satisfy the NMBA registration requirements which states that: “At time when applying for NMBA registration as an EN Graduate, the graduate must be able to demonstrate that they can provide evidence of five (5) years (fulltime equivalent) of education taught and assessed in English in one of the recognised countries”. The completion of the full time equivalent education must be a combination of the following taught in a recognised country.

OR

  • Demonstrated minimum scores in one of the following English Language Tests, IELTS, OET, PTE Academic, TOEFL iBT. The scores must be from one sitting. For students who have test results from multiple sittings, please refer to NMBA Registration Standard: English Language Skills (July 2015)

As well as meeting the entry requirements, students must also be able to obtain the below mentioned to be eligible to commence in the Diploma of Nursing. If you cannot obtain the following, you will be ineligible to attend clinical placements, therefore ineligible to commence in the Diploma of Nursing program.

  • Criminal clearance valid within 12 months of this application
  • Pre-entry medical exam (documents will be provided upon successful entry into the program)
