The Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) is an accredited secondary certificate that includes industry training. Note that VCAL Nursing is only available to VCAL Senior (Year 12) students. The VCAL Nursing (Senior) course allows Year 12 students to begin their Diploma of Nursing, which can be completed the following year. When you complete the Diploma of Nursing, you’ll be eligible for registration as an enrolled nurse in Australia.
During the course you’ll gain industry specific training in client assessment, anatomy and physiology, nursing care plans, infection control, and analysis of health information. You will also build numeracy, literacy, personal development, and work related skills.
