    I work all over a public hospital because I am casual there. Stroke wards and neurology are always interesting. I think you will find that you will never no it all. You will continue to learn something new everyday forever.

    Kazza can I ask what state are you in and what the employment opportunities are for EN's? I am finding that a lot of people are still telling me that I should of done div one and that majority of EN's end up in Aged Care (which I don't mind but I want acute experience first) Also how are you treated at work by Div ones? are they pretty accepting of ENs in acute cAre or do they have the " EN's are taking our jobs" mentality?

    Sorry for all the questions just think it would be good to get some perspective from someone who is where I want to be

    I am in sa and we only have en diploma and rn's. The employment prospects are pretty good for en's in sa because they are the cheaper option with med acreditation.
    Please stay in acute, I dont like seeing people go through all that study only to work in aged care and loose all their skills.

    Just saw giggles course goes for 2 years. How long does everyone elses go for?
    Mine is only a year long. 3 afternoons of theory a week, one morning session of prac a week, 2 optional tutes a week and 400 hours of clinical placements over 10 weeks.
    Last year it went for 18 months and they had 800 hours of clinical placements. They shortened it this year for some reason.

    I'm only week one down (and I've done my AIN's)... I feel like my brain is going to explode! Seriously concerned at how I'll cope!!!

    I'm either repeating things (bed making & hand washing) or scared at how much I'll need to know (A&P)!!! I'm finding I'm a sponge in Health Terminology, but my BIG concern is A&P.

    Have you done much work as an AIN? I'm wondering how i will cope with prac especially the aged care one.
    I don't think a&p will be too bad. We get it broken down into smaller sections and have a multiple choice test at the end of each section. If we fail so much as one section we have to sit one big test cover all sections at the end.
