I know I want to be a nurse.
That is for sure.
But I can't afford to put my 2 youngest kids in daycare to study for the diploma as its 4 days a week.
I have an opportunity for a interview for an Agee care traineeship . You get paid as well to work there.
We need the money but I know I want to be a nurse.

Aged care cert 3 or diploma enrolled nursing

If you do the cert 3 now you will be able to work while doing your diploma as well. Another upside is you will get some rpl and wipe out some of the boring modules like 'hand hygiene'.
You could look at studying via correspondence through Gold Coast Tafe. That may be another option?
Or going directly to uni? There are generally less contact hours and more of the study can be done from home.

Gold Coast tafe is enrolling in April so I would not make it.
Also I would have to take 2 week blocks off every semester .

What about part time options? You might be able do less days per week over a longer period of time.
Have you looked into whether you would be eligible for JET childcare assistance?

I am looking at doing diploma of nursing exernally through GC tafe.. though I am not sure when the intakes are... On the Tafe's site it states that this will make me an EN, is that right? I'm also having trouble finding the duration of the course..
I am hoping to do it this way as my youngest is only 10 months old and at home with me.. though I can ask family to help when prac dates come up.
I am wanting to get into midwifery after I have completed the diploma. Has anyone else done it this way?? TIA So great to find others in the same position!

And, yep, you are right- completition of the course will make you an EN.
I'm not sure how you would go about getting into midwifery after the diploma. The diploma wipes basically the first year of the bachelor of nursing away. So midwifery may be the same?
You should be able to suss out online what credit your uni will give you once you've got your diploma. Otherwise, i guess you could always give them a call and ask.
