Great Ocean Road Health Lorne & Apollo Bay Campus


This comprehensive 12-month program aims to create a supportive environment for Enrolled Nurses, facilitating the consolidation of knowledge and the development of nursing skills within a positive learning environment and a collaborative team.

The onboarding process will commence with a two-day supernumerary period, encompassing emergency procedure training and the completion of an orientation checklist. Each participant will be supported by an experienced educator and assigned a dedicated preceptor throughout the program.

To enrich the learning experience, participants will have access to external education, with a minimum requirement including courses on comprehensive health assessment, Montessori philosophy of care, and recognizing and responding to clinical deterioration. On-site training will be provided in acute and aged care by an experienced team, featuring Nurse Practitioners, RIPRN, and ED Consultants from the EMET program. Opportunities for regional training via telehealth, such as palliative care, will also be available.

Participants will be offered the opportunity to complete the Rural Urgent Care Nursing Program.

Within the first three months, the educator or Nurse Unit Manager (NUM) will conduct a skills assessment and develop an individualized training plan for each participant. Regular reviews of the training plan will occur every three months in collaboration with the assigned mentor.

GORH adheres to a supervision and delegation policy, with EN Graduates being supervised by Registered Nurses. The program will be coordinated by the educator, with oversight, reporting, and guidance from the Senior Nursing Leadership team.
