Hi Everyone,

I have partially completed my nursing degree, but due to family problems, and consequently financial problems, I have had to quit Uni some time ago to work full time. I have just discovered (through this forum!) that I can study Enrolled nursing online, which will be fantastic for me. I have a few questions though, which I haven't really been able to have sorted out via phone calls with TAFE. I was wondering if anyone here may be able to help me out. Firstly, does anyone know anything about getting credit transfers from my uni course to TAFE. Is it fairly straight forward? Are they generous with credit transfers or will I have to re-do a lot of what I have done at Uni? How do you go about applying for the credits and do you get a reduction in the cost of the course? Secondly, I am very keen to start NOW and the Gold Coast intake isn't until October, while the Mackay course opens in July. I also heard there are limited places at the Gold Coast and acceptance isnt guaranteed, whereas the course in Mackay has umplimited places. Has anyone done this course in Mackay from quite a distance (I am in Brisbane), and how did it work out for you? I would really appreciate any help people could give me, as I am very keen to become an EN.

Hi Jess

Sorry i am from Perth..and dont know about the courses in Gold Coast or Brisbane, but i am same situation with u...suffering from fiancial burden as well as studying full time..swap course from uni to TAFE.

I am sure TAFE will give u part of the examption , depends on what units you took in uni, for mine one, i got examption on communication in nursing, nursing in aged care and one subject in pathophysiology , actually i think mental health as well, but damn that grumpy lecturer refuse to give me exemption because it was 2 years since i finished the unit..anyway, goodluck in the course and bring us some good news back! Cheers Kathy
