Hi I'm a Registered nurse in the UK with 8 years experience, but I qualified with a diploma not degree. Does anyone know if this would make me a RN or EN in australia when i move out in Jan.

AHPRA registers nurses from the UK that have only done disability nursing as general RN and there is no such nurse over here, with the priviso that they will only work in disability which is practically impossible as there are not any nurses in strictly disability areas, so if you have any nursing registration with Uk nurses board, you get registration as an RN with the hope that you only work in the area that you were educated in.
Pity it is not recipricated.
