Bachelor of Nursing and Midwifery Question...
17-03-2016 19:51 #2
I just started a bachelor of nursing this year through Deakin. I applied last year as a mature age student. I had previously completed a bachelor of arts/bachelor of business (completed in 2002), had worked for 8 years in managing claims for people injured in transport accidents and before that had worked for a short time as an attendant carer for quadriplegics. I had also completed several subjects over the last few years through open universities and was accepted into Griffith Uni arts in 2014 but decided not to go ahead with it. Because of the open uni units I didn't have to do the literacy or numeracy test (STAT) as part of my application.
I have no idea how much of this had an impact on their decision to let me in. The application also requires you to explain why you're interested in the course etc so I obviously did my bit about that as well. I got an early round offer in November (which I believe is fairly common for nature age students).
While not exactly the same degree, they're both pretty close in terms of entry requirements AFAIK.

I've started a Bachelor of Nursing this year at CQU. I applied as a mature aged student. I had completed year 12 (last century 😂) and am a diploma qualified massage therapist but I've never undertaken any undergraduate studies. I did have to include a resume with my work history as well as other studies since school as part of my application.

Thank you for your replies 😊
I have been told that if you have a pervious degree, even if in a totally different area, you would be in a more highly favourable position to be considered when applying.. Is that correct?

So nursing and midwifery have different requirements to be considered. In my state the atar for nursing is 62 and midwifery is 96.5. I did the foundation studies course. It's a three month course and they teach you how to write essays etc. it was fantastic, I wouldn't have been able to consider uni without it as I haven't studied for so long. They then convert your score into an atar. You do get bonus points for having completed a previous degree/diploma but that wasn't the case for me.

It depends on which state you are in as well as each tertiary admissions centre does things differently. I am in my first year of midwifery at ACU in Brisbane. I had a diploma and also did the stat test and ended up with a rank of 86 I believe...I can't actually remember to be honest. But it got me in. I would have gotten in with my diploma but did the stat test just to be sure
