LA TROBE University gives healthcare professionals the opportunity to re-enter the field with a short course. The University’s Re-Entry to Practice (RN) course is a way for nurses to re-register and return to the workforce in just 10 weeks. Nurse-re-entry student Narelle Williams welcomed the opportunity to return to the industry she loved after she left after serious illness.

But the years flew by, and here we are – I had wanted to get back to nursing for a long time, so I was very excited when the opportunity to regain my registration came up, “she said. I’m a complete beginner when it comes to computers and have never done any online learning, but I have had wonderful support from La Trobe and it has been an amazing experience.
