Diploma of Nursing in BBay : South Coast Colleges


South Coast Colleges are very proud to announce that they have been accredited by ANMAC (Australian Nursing & Midwifery Accreditation Council) to deliver Diploma of Nursing with the first group of students commencing the course in the coming weeks.

‘We are the first Community College in Australia to be accredited to deliver the Diploma, and we are just thrilled’, said College CEO Sarah Watterson. The Diploma will be delivered over an 18 month period with students attending 3 days per week. Course content will be presented via a variety of learning methods including face-to-face lectures, online content and hands on experience during clinical placement.


The first group of students will be starting at the Batemans Bay campus towards the end of January. It is hoped that the Diploma of Nursing will be offered at both the Merimbula and Ulladulla campuses in the future.

The successful graduates will be able to apply for Enrolled Nurse registration. Enrolled Nurses work in a variety of healthcare environments providing clinical care and emotional support to their patients. The South Coast Colleges Diploma of Nursing students will learn how to communicate effectively with patients and other staff, administer and monitor medications, manage the care of wounds and prepare health assessments and care plans. Graduates may also choose to go on to University to expand on their qualifications.

‘Our staff and trainers have worked very hard to secure the accreditation which has now enabled us to offer the Diploma of Nursing. The team at South Coast Colleges are all very excited to have been given the opportunity to offer this course to our community.’ Ms Watterson said.
