    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.

    I worked FT from when I started placement really so about 4/5 months. Honestly, I LOVE it! I have a real passion for aged care

    I worked half of my experience time in the community, which is my favourite. Honestly I'm doing the EN course because a) it'll increase my employability but mostly because b) I'll get a company car to use with most companies, and I was going through $200 a week in fuel while being paid $450 and having 40% of my pay taken from my PPS, so I just couldn't afford to keep working.

    It's honestly incredible work. It's for some, and not for others but if you've got what it takes to be a nurse, see the things we'll see and have that passion for helping people, I think you'll do great Feel free to add me on FB or PM me if you have any extra questions or need anything

    Last year it went for 18 months and they had 800 hours of clinical placements. They shortened it this year for some reason.

    Mine is only two days a week ( mixture of labs and theory ) and we get about eight weeks off per year for semester/Xmas break. Our clinical placements are ten weeks spread out in two week blocks over the two years. I'm a bit jealous that you will graduate in half the time as me!!! I'm in vic and I think most of our cordless are two years for dip nursing.

    They have a hsc group just out of highschool that started in december and will finish in June. That's awfully quick i think.
    They are lucky that they get their assignments dumbed down and prompted through all assesments.

    It's terrible what campbell newman has done, isn't it?
    Who knows where things will be sometime down the track though? Employment will have to go back up at some point. We are always going to need nurses.

    Todays class was a bit more exciting then last few. We did some work on bacteria then some boring whs stuff.
    Next week we get into the a&p. I think that will be interesting.
