Pathway to a Secure Career and Future - Nursing and Pathology in Australia


What you need to know about Nursing or Pathology studies to secure a future professional work life for yourself

In every part of the world, nurses play a significant, selfless role as carer and comforter, having the special ability to ease our discomfort and enrich our lives with their skills, knowledge and passion. 

Australia boasts a reliable healthcare system, an expansive public and private hospital structure, state-of-the-art medical centres, a regulated residential aged care system and leading medical research programs. Every area of healthcare requires the skills and professionalism of dedicated nurses.   

In Australia, there are different levels of nursing determined by the level of study completed, which in turn regulates the roles and responsibilities of the nurse. At present, the minimum qualification required to become a nurse is at the diploma level. Completion of the HLT54115 Diploma of Nursing qualification will provide the successful graduate with the opportunity to become an Enrolled Nurse.

Closely related to nursing is pathology. Pathology is the engine room of the medical world - it involves the process of collecting blood or other samples for testing, and the results help millions of people find answers to their medical questions and problems. How do you get involved in this fascinating sector? The minimum qualification of HLT37215 Certificate III in Pathology Collection enables you to start your professional journey as a Pathology Specimen Collector, to work in pathology collection centres and also within General Practice or the hospital system.

Courses at the diploma and certificate levels are offered at private registered training organisations. The main advantage of completing a qualification at this level is the shorter study period and the potential to be out in the workforce earlier, in comparison to a bachelor degree at university level. Once you start working, you could further your studies if you desired, and you’d be able to continue working and earning an income while you study.

When you search for a place of study for Nursing or Pathology, it is a good idea to call and visit the institute or training organisation. Ask for details about the course and the practical experience arrangements. What if you struggled at some point in the course, what do they have in place to support and guide you? Check if there are any ongoing or additional fees and request to see their clinical facilities and laboratories. Size often does not dictate the quality of training, and bigger is not always better. A smaller training organization often runs smaller class sizes and will offer a more personalised teaching environment.

At Care Training Australia, we offer the HLT54115 Diploma of Nursing and HLT37215 Certificate III in Pathology Collection in a supportive and nurturing learning environment, in the leafy South Eastern suburbs of Murrumbeena and Carnegie.
