Enrolled nurses (ENs) are those who possess a Diploma of Enrolled Nursing from TAFE or an accredited Aboriginal Health Training College.

Enrolled nurses work under the supervision of a registered nurse to provide patients, from all backgrounds and ages, with basic nursing care. Within their scope of practice, ENs are accomplished in the practical skills of nursing, with advanced ENs able to undertake more complex procedures.
