Hi,

I was wondering if anyone could recommend enrolled nursing courses in Adelaide. I would prefer Tafe but the rules for Skills for All funding has just changed which means I would have to pay full fee costs.

Tafe is quoting a full fee price of $28,000 but I'm sure there must be other good EN courses available that are cheaper?

My RN course at ACU is going to end up costing me $20,000. Would you consider becoming an RN since it will cost the same, if not less than it would to become an EEN? Your fees would be placed on HECS so you won't have to pay a cent until you graduate and start earning over the threshold. 

Open University offers an online RN degree via Uni SA so you would be able to do about 80% of your course online :)

RN's have the opportunity to earn more than EEN's too so it would be a good decision to make for your future

Hi Tyler

RDNS would charge you AUD 13,000 full course fee, Equals international $ 9,995 as full course fee ANMFSA $ 10,000. I normally see people recommending TAFE and RDNS and ANMFA as secondary options and other Equals and Celtic Trainings as not so good ones. Tafe has full time programme which goes like 4 to 5 days a week for 18 months and RDNS has for one and a half day per week. All these informations are from the institutes website.

Thanks

Thanks for your replies. I think the RN external course may be the way to go. The UniSA external RN course might be worth a look but I have heard mixed reviews about it.

A friend of mine has just finished first year through Uni SA and said that at times it was challenging, but it was not as hard as she was expecting an external course to be.
