    I'm applying through TAFE. It's a popular course with limited places unfortunately.
    I wasn't aware you could do it privately?

    From what ive heard its very expensive going private. I still think you should apply, you might still get in. Good luck

    I will still apply for first semester next year ( missed this semesters cut off). If i don't get in i will do the cert III and see if that helps at all come the following semester.

    I find the application odd. It states the course is for people who have no nursing experience but then goes on to ask what relevant industry experience you do have??

    I think you will find that they would prefer people who have been carers but and the end of the day, half of the people who have got in will not have any carer experience. So they have no choice but to accept you.

    Is the cert 3 the health services assistant? I just finished it. It is easy and you become an AIN but it wint get you into the en course. Although having it on your application looks good and if you haven't studied in a while it's an awesome way to adjust before doing the diploma plus that way you can work through the diploma.
    And it gives you a taste of nursing do you don't commit yourself to 18 months and $16000 debt if you don't enjoy it.
    Go for it!

    Yeah the cert III in acute care is the one where you finish up being an AIN. I relise it doesn't get you into the diploma but as you said might look good on the application.

    The course fees vary heaps. I've seen $1962 through to $15600. I have no idea how much it is at my local TAFE? The more expensive ones say commercial fees apply??

    You dont end up really learning anything until you do your placement at the end. So tafe is cheaper. And when applying for work later all they look at is is if you are qualified not where you studied. If that helps

    Mine (riverina) is $15600 for the diploma because Griffith Tafe only does it commercially

    What do you mean by 'commercially' in regards to Griffith?
