Online study is a great way to achieve your learning goals in a manner that works for you. Studying the Diploma of Nursing (HLT54115) online gives you the flexibility to learn the theoretical components of the course at your own pace, giving you the opportunity to continue with your everyday commitments.

If you choose to study online, you will have access to Studiosity, TAFE Queensland’s free online support service where you can talk to tutors and get all guidance and encouragement you may need to stay on track.

Whilst the majority of the learning is done online, there will be times when you will need to attend residential schools. This is a great opportunity for you to learn in our state-of-the-art simulated nursing labs. As part of this course you will also undertake vocational placement to ensure you are job-ready at the conclusion of your course.

Our nationally recognised Diploma of Nursing (HLT54115) has been designed for you to gain formal qualifications as an Enrolled Nurse. You'll benefit from on-the-job clinical experience in community, long term residential, rehabilitation and acute care settings.
