Dear All,

I plan to study the Bachelor of Nursing by distance mode who live in Melbourne. Can you please tell me which university is good at the Bachelor of Nursing with distance education mode? Which uni is easier to graduate? Which uni can provide sufficient work placement especially at hospital placement for the interstate students if I study at interstate by distance mode?

I read some of the forum tips here and find that some people recommend CDU but some feel exhausting at CDU now. Thus, I confuse whether CDU is still a good choice.

I'm urgent and eager to know more updated information and feedback from the current and/or previous nursing students to find a suitable course because I need to make an application asap.

Please give me some advice.

Thanks for your time and kind attention.

I was studying at UNI South Australia as a distance student completing the Bachelor of Nursing and found their program at the time to be very poor i managed to get some placements in Victoria however myself and approx. 6 other students who had also placed at that hospital were told by our clinical facilitator that our clinical and assessment skills were a long way behind the other students she predominantly looked after from Monash University. I ended up transferring to Deakin in Burwood and haven't looked back- being on campus i learned a lot more and had higher developed practical skills and assessment skills in my first semester than what i had learned over a year and half at Uni SA. Majority of students were required to go interstate for placement and my understanding is now that their are even fewer undergrad placements now for Victorian Universities who are given preference over interstate uni's.

Having said that the program at uni SA has changed and does look a lot better but as far as i know their are still very few placements in metro Melbourne as most hospitals have partnerships with Victorian Universities. I did meet a girl from CDU last year who had glowing reports for the uni but still had to do some placement interstate.
