im a mum of 4 including a newborn 7 weeks old. And when she is around 8 mths I'm thinking I would like to study enrolled nursing. It's 3 days a week 9-4.30pm and it goes for 18mths.
It's a big step as I haven't studied for 20 years. Doesn't seem that long ago.
careers australia is offering the course with vet help.
im not sure i know how to study or if I can even do any of the assignments.
I have always been interested in nursing, and think it would be a interesting job.
im a little scared, just wanted to know what kind of things you will do in the role inself.

Hey, noone has replied to you! I can't help you that much as I'm not a nurse. Enrolled nurses assist Registered nurses and perform nursing duties under a RNs supervision. I love the government website joboutlook.gov.au. It has information about a wide range of careers. There is general information, as well as prospects, statistics and skills.
Good luck with your studies. After 10 years I'm looking at studying again too! Scary and exciting and I can't wait!

So the role of an EEN and RN are changing slightly they are moving closer together. EEN are being trained to do more. It really does depend on the job that you go for eg nursing home, ward, theatre, agency.
Some tafes offer the diploma part time. Its 2 years (3 nights per week at 4 hours). I did mine part time cause I worked full time. You can get Vet fee help at some tafes but not too sure which ones. Good luck with your decision.

As a mother of 5 also over the age of 35 (just) wanted to wish you all the best with your future endeavors. I am studying Midwifery and absolutely love it. It's hard work but well worth it.
