Hi Anisa,

Welcome to Aus and to NurseCentral. You don't say where you are from, but I would suggest contacting the universities closest to you about their external offerings. Usually you will still need to attend at some times, particularly for the practical elements.

I know that some educators do visit NC, so maybe some of you will offer some advice.

Anisa, I am only a little bit familiar with South Australian Universities.

I thought that UniSA does what you are looking for.

Here is a link to get you started and it might pay to talk to someone from the Nursing Division there.

 

cheers
