Hi all,

I'm struggling to find a diploma of nursing night course that caters for people who work full time In Victoria. 

i'd like to start a petition with other people who would also like to do the diploma course at night / evening / weekend. 

I'm from the eastern suburbs of melbourne & have contacted health skills australia blackburn and skills training at knox to suggest they run a night course.  They both told me they may look into one in the future but I reckon if I can get enough people together they may seriously do it. 

Anyone else interested????

hello,have you considered doing the diploma online,you can work at your own pace when you have free time.I'm currently studying the diploma with GCIT.Online.And there is alot of people doing it from all over australia.However you do have to attend 3 residential schools on the gold coast.and you must do 400hrs of placement(work experience) which must also be taken into consideration if you are working full time.

Hi CJ,

Thanks for the tip! I've looked into this option but its extremely expensive (not subsidised) & i font want a huge vet fee hanging over my head. Also I would rather do it in a class opposed to online & the amount of time at residential schools plus work placement is too much whilst working. 

Cheers, Makeets.

Lol how much is the GCIT paying you to market their course????

It is very obvious to me you are a fraudulent profile & you have been reported. 

Shouldnt you be busy studying instead of scouring this forum to promote the GCIT??

BTW it actually works out cheaper than the GCIT fees when you add in the incidental fees & flights / accomodation. Not to mention learning face to face kicks ass over learning online.

Hi there,

I haven't started studying yet but this is what I have found..........

Health Skills Australia do the Diploma of Nursing in the evenings now which I believe is now government subsidised. There's a new intake for a course starting in February either in the City or Blackburn from 3.15pm to 9pm I think. Check out their website for the details.

There is also the Bachelor of Nursing course through Charles Darwin University which can be taken online at home. You just need to attend 3 weeks of clinical training blocks throughout the degree which they say you may have to attend Darwin or Alice Springs but most likely will be in Melbourne as they have now opened up a training centre here which is good news. There is also the 10 weeks or so of clinical placements which they also told me would most likely be in Melb.

These are the only 2 courses I have personally found that cater for people working full time that are government subsidised.

Good luck! :)

Someone already mentioned Health Skills, but I thought I would comment that this year I started the part-time night classes in the CBD.
Twice a week my classes are from 3:15pm to 9:15pm. The positive thing is that part time only takes 2 years (6 x 13 week terms, 3 per year).
Also thought I would let people know that we were advised this year that a lot of nursing students across Australia have been missing out on their clinical hours due to not enough space (something around million hours), so hospitals and other healthcare facilities are now looking at having students complete some of their clinical hours over nights and weekends.

Makeets, you were very insulting/rude to cj123, you asked a question that she answered GCIT is an option! I believe she was asking a genuine question re the fees as that is how much it is to study thru GCIT, which some of us have to pay as we already hold a diploma or higher qualification so have to pay full fees. Also many who work FT,  as I do, are shift workers, so work afternoons, nights and weekends so online courses with less on campus time (even if we would like to ) are our only options.

CQUinversity offer degree via distance ( best one re placements in your own area or close to), also Uni SA and Charles Sturt Uni offer distance from 2nd year.
