    Oh yeah, i know hospitals do it. I've heard of Wesley offering a course too. Just never heard of it through the Mater- is it through the private hospital?

    its a bit more hands on then tafe Hospital based, no, not just the private hospital harvest moon, the training and prac is done through all the different sections of the hospital but they have a really good teaching setup too, you know the kind with those creepy dummies

    Has anyone given thought to electives?? I really dont know which Area i want to go into nor what to specialize in :/

    I thought the amount of prac required would be similar regardless of the course provider? I know our prac has to be carried out in a variety of nursing homes and hospitals in the area.
    As for electives, being tafe based, i would say they are all picked for us.

    In chermside 😊 yep the private hospital im really excited. I started by doing a intro to nursing short course (4 units from the dip) last year through tafe and was offered to complete my diploma at the Holy Spirit.

    Our prac, labs and classes are all at the Holy Spirit. Pracs every Monday within the hospital 👍

    Ahhh I think my MIL works there, as well as mercy at Nudgee. Wow the intro couse sounds quite good, a great way to get a feel for the course.

    MIL offerend to get me into her line of work as an AIN then work would pay for the diploma, but i think i like doing it on my own terms better.. Plus not really interested in aged care type work which is all she does.


    are you ladies looking at doing a bachelor in the future, or just sticking with EN work?

    Ideally, if it all works out with the EEN course that's where i would like to end up. I'm a bit wary of uni though- not sure if i will cut it out in the academic world.
    I'm a bit worried i won't be able to hack nursing in general. We will be exposed to so many confronting, horrible and horrendous sites i would imagine. I'm a bit fearful i'm going to end up emotionally scared for life and just not able to cope.
    I hope i can get past it though and will just become desensitised to it all over time. It will be such an stable career choice with plenty of different areas to work within.

    Hi Harvest Moon. I completed my EEN study just over 1 1/2 ago. You will know from your first prac whether or not you will be cut out to be a nurse. You will find that on your pracs you are "taken care of". Never overstep what you have been taught if you don't know say it. Nurses look after you far better if you aren't rude, ask questions and ask them what you can do to help. Patients love to be given the time of day and will treat you with respect. Remember to smile (of course where appropriate) at patients it shows you care (older nurses lose this touch).
    Anything I can do to help any of you studying let me know. I still have some text books as well. (Oh don't get Nursing and the Law not worth the money and of no use whatsoever).
