    As far as I'm aware, best to get a bachelor of nursing and a few years hospital experience or enrolled nurse training and the same experience in the hospital setting. Showing an interest in community health is essential.

    ^ yes this. Community positions are often in demand as they're often 9-5 positions (as opposed to shift work) so a couple of years acute (ie. on the wards) experience at a hospital would definitely help.

    You will most likely need to do registered or enrolled nursing. Most of the community nurses I know of are RNs though which is a university degree
