Registered Nurse Re-entry to Practice Program
(Online or On Campus)

Re-entry Course Details

The Registered Nurse Re-entry to Practice Program (available in both online or on campus modes of delivery) has been developed to prepare nurses seeking re-registration. The course is accredited by the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Accreditation Council (ANMAC) and comprises a total of four units of study, equivalent to 320 hours of study (160 hours theory and 160 hours clinical placement).

Students have the option to complete 128 hours of theory online via flexible delivery, with the remaining 32 hours of practical assessment to be completed at an IHNA Education Centre.

The course is structured to reflect contemporary nursing practice in Australia and to build upon the previous experience and knowledge of a student. IHNA is committed to providing a supportive learning environment that is guided by experienced educators.

Clinical placements form an important part of nurse training, and returning nurses are required to complete 160 hours of supervised clinical practice. IHNA will arrange this clinical placement or the student may coordinate his or her own placement. Within the re-entry or Return to Practice program IHNA recommends students look to commit to a minimum 3 days per week in completing their clinical placements.

In summary, this course prepares students to re-enter the modern nursing environment in which an increased analytical ability combined with a commitment to the highest standards and demonstrated safe practice will enable a student to achieve the required ANMC competency standards.

On successful completion of this course, graduates will be eligible to apply to AHPRA for registration as a Registered Nurse.
