    Hi mylilcookiemonster, I started part time last year and have completed the 2 biology subjects and 2 core sociology subjects, and due to having my DS2 in January this year (good time of year huh!) I did one subject this semester only. Of the 5 subjects I've done (still waiting for the results of this semester) 4 of them are also required for the midwifery degree. So that will cut some time off the degree!

    I have really enjoyed it! I feel the same as you though, being part time it's hard to feel as involved in the Uni as I could be. But I simply don't have the time to mingle and get to know anyone! My eldest is also in school so that cuts the day right down as far as study time goes too.
    The biology subjects were very difficult but I loved learning about it all.

    Hi
    Hope its okay for me to join this thread. I am putting in an application for a Diploma of Nursing (Enrolled Nursing) course.

    Kind of freaking out!

    I have two young kids and am unsure how I will be able to fit everything in, especially organising care for the kids while I'm on clinical pracs.

    Any tips or wise words of advice would be much appreciated!

    But it is something I really want to do. And if I keep being scared, I'll never do it. So fingers crossed I get offered a position.

    Honestly the best tip for someone in your position is: don't do it!
    Seriously reconsider your options. Uni isn't much more expensive and the qualification is better/will open up more doors. Uni offers a far more supportive learning environment and is more flexible. Definitely better for someone who has kids.
    I wish i had of known what i do now back when i signed up for the diploma of nursing. It was such a horrible waste of time and money. I think just about everyone is the class expressed the same regret - should have gone to uni instead.

    Thank u for your honesty, I ummed and ahhed for about 6 months on what route I wanted to take re en or rn, en was appealing because it's a shorter course but I knew eventually is want rn because I want to do palliative, this has just reassured me

    Foggy- Thats great! At least you have a start on it, and the units will be credited. I have completed one unit and am now studying two units. I have a study plan if all goes to plan I will graduate in 2018 it feels so far away

    I would love to be more involved, but as you said I just don't get the time. I am in the process of freaking out at the moment. I have a case study and essay due in two weeks.

    Jodie- I am sure these next 5 weeks will fly by!

    Yeah the one subject I did last semester had an essay, an oral group assignment and the exam, as well as weekly lectures and biweekly tutorials! I'm kind of worried how I'm going to go with (hopefully) three subjects next semester. The kids were in daycare 2 days (and school) and I used every minute of those 2 days for Uni. But after the whole drop off and pick up it really only left me from 9:30 until 2 to do any work.

    Hi,

    I am hoping to study midwifery midyear.
    Because of my year 12 results (and it being 15 years since being at school) I have decided to do the TEP course instead of the STAT test. I have already done my online assessment and I have got into the TEP2 course, but I need to wait till Jan to see if I can apply for the 1st available course. I will be studying thru CDU

    I'm sorry you are disappointed with your STAT test, I found the test quite difficult too and the last 10 questions I just guessed as I almost ran out of time! With Christmas coming up, those 5 weeks will fly by! I decided to add another preference to my list just in case I don't get a place in Midwifery or Nursing so I've added Nursing/Paramedicine. I thought if I can at least start and hopefully the following year transfer to Mid. Most of the units are the same as Mid and Nursing too so I can get them credited.

    Good luck to all the new members in the thread!

    I've 3 kids - 5 years, 3 years and 10 months.
    Hello Foggy!

    I am so excited for you to find out in December! That would be a dream for me to find out that early! Can't wait for our catch up on Wednesday
