Just wondering if anyone is doing or has done Div 2 course at Care Training Australia? I've been accepted and just wondering what it will be like?

What do you mean? What sort of problems and why especially in the middle of the course? I have already paid, can't really cancel now.

hi..

i just finished my div 2 at cta and although they were bad to start off with they have greatly improved.

i know that they got rid of some teachers and are under new management.

in the end if nursing is what you want to do then you will get through...

Thanks bolet and jaf. I have just started and the class size is very big. I was wondering if many people drop out? Also, do they make any effort to give you placements near to your home?

people start dropping out while your doing meds... although some do drop out earlier. as for placements the first one which is aged care is usually as close to your home as they can... as for the last placement they put you were they think your suited (as in how much information you have retained) but its only for 2 weeks so it doesn't matter as much

The test for literacy and numeracy was a lot easier than I expected. The numeracy part was like the ones on the vetassess examples I saw online. I did about an hour of revision online and passed it fine. The literacy was quite easy, no essay, had to write a paragraph about why you want to do nursing. There was a newspaper type article about hospitals and questions on it. I think there was an hour for the test but I finished it quickly and got them all correct. I'm finding the course good so far.

I heard it was much harder to get into Tafe. Anyway I'm already doing this course and enjoying it.

If you just want something easy... go CTA, but if you really want to be a good nurse, a big NO No for CTA :)
