I am currently working in BC, Canada as an LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse).

It always has been a dream to go to Australia and work there as a nurse (if possible, as an LPN), but not sure if ENs do similar things with us. 

I read scope of practice for ENs and I understand ENs can administer Meds including IV meds. 

.

Do ENs work a lot in patient wards? Medicine, surgical,.... 

Do ENs give all of the oral meds? What about IV or other meds? 

.Here, we work mostly same with RNs, giving meds, giving reports to the team, same workload... 

For some IV meds we collaborate with RNs. They check and administer. 

We can give insulin/ anticoagulants/ narcotics 

.

Sorry if these questions are silly! but very important to me to understand what I am aiming for and to be prepared for my dream. 

Thanks a lot!
