Registered Nurse (RN1): The minimum educational requirement for a registered nurse is a Bachelor’s Degree from a higher education institution or equivalent from a recognised hospital-based program. RNs are often given the role and duties of a unit manager, team leaders, or administrator. Their responsibilities may include, but aren’t exclusive to, medication administration, assessment, and management of patients and complex or specialised nursing care.

Undergraduate Assistant in Nursing: Undergraduates employed as assistants in nursing or midwifery assist in the provision of basic nursing care, working within a plan of care under the supervision and direction of a registered nurse or midwife. The Undergraduate Assistant in Nursing/Midwifery remains accountable for their practice.
Disability Support Worker: You can work as a disability support worker without formal qualifications, however, obtaining a Certificate III or IV in disability care may be very beneficial. You can also become a disability support worker through a traineeship. Disability support workers provide care, supervision and support for people with disabilities in the home, residential establishments, clinics and hospitals. They also work with other health professionals to maximise the individual’s physical and mental wellbeing. They also provide companionship and emotional support, and when possible, promote independence and community participation.
