ENs wishing to remove a notation on their registration or update their qualification to allow medication delivery in the workplace must complete the unit of study; HLTENN007 Administer and monitor medicines and intravenous therapy. This is a unit that is provided within an NMBA-approved Diploma of Nursing course.
