About the Role
Exciting opportunity for an Enrolled Nurse to join the general surgical ward at Nepean Hospital. This is a full time position 7 day a week rotating roster

  • Provision of safe patient care
  • Provision of care activities to patients in accordance with the nursing care plan and under the supervision of a Registered Nurse within the scope of practice of an Enrolled Nurse specific to service need.
  • Contribute to collecting accurate health care information and maintaining accurate health care documentation as required
  • Communicate effectively with patients and other health care team members in accordance with appropriate protocol

The Enrolled nurse standards for practice are the core practice standards that provide the framework for assessing enrolled nurse (EN) practice.

The standards for practice remain broad and principle-based so that they are sufficiently dynamic for practising nurses to use as a benchmark to assess competence to practise in a range of settings.

The EN works with the Registered Nurse (RN) as part of the health care team and demonstrates competence in the provision of person-centred care. Core practice generally requires the EN to work under the direct or indirect supervision of the RN. At all times, the EN retains responsibility for his/her actions and remains accountable in providing delegated nursing care. The need for the EN to have a named and accessible RN at all times and in all contexts of care for support and guidance is critical to patient safety.

Although the scope of practice for each EN will vary according to context and education, the EN has a responsibility for ongoing self and professional development to maintain their knowledge base through life-long learning, and continue to demonstrate the types of core nursing activities that an EN would be expected to undertake on entry to practice.

ENs engage in analytical thinking; use information and/or evidence; and skilfully and empathetically communicate with all involved in the provision of care, including the person receiving care and their family and community, and health professional colleagues.
The EN standards are clinically focused and they reflect the EN’s capability to:

  • Provide direct and indirect care
  • Engage in reflective and analytical practice, and
  • Demonstrate professional and collaborative practice. ENs, where appropriate, educate and support other (unregulated) health care workers (however titled) related to the provision of care.

ENs collaborate and consult with health care recipients, their families and community as well as RNs and other health professionals, to plan, implement and evaluate integrated care that optimises outcomes for recipients and the systems of care. They are responsible for the delegated care they provide and self-monitor their work.
