The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) recognises that nurses with relevant qualifications may hold registration as both a Registered Nurse (RN) (division 1) and as an Enrolled Nurse (EN) (division 2). Holding registration in both divisions is called concurrent registration (holding registration as a nurse and midwife is called dual registration). However, a nurse with concurrent registration should be careful when practicing, particularly when registered as a RN but working as an EN. Nurses must be able to differentiate between the relevant responsibilities and scopes of practice for a RN or EN.
This information sheet outlines how to be familiar with the practice for each division of nursing.
