I already enrolled in Diploma of Nursing and we already start this week. Yesterday, I received an offer for Bachelor of Nursing which my first choice anyway. I always wanted to do the Bachelor one and just apply for Tafe just in case I won't get in into Bachelor. The 1st week of Diploma of Nursing is quite overwhelming,we already given an assignment and what I hate is the referencing thing but I have to love it. I'm 30 and a mother of a 4 year old girl. I'm thinking I will continue my EN instead of accepting the RN study so I can get a job quick or apply for a Grad Program. and I started to make some few friends at Tafe which the potential group study because the worst thing is to be alone. We're only 11 in the class and I don't know if it's a good thing or bad thing tho..

I hope I made the right decision. .

Hi Lilibeth, there really isn't a right answer to your whether to do your EN or RN's, i did my EEN's first as i was working full time night shift in aged care as a AIN and still had children at school and the hours worked for me, it was still very very hard, you do more assignments in EEN study and have to be really organised with your time, they say ten hours study a week but its more like 20+, but you will get that with your RN study too. if your new to the health industry i would suggest start with your EEN it will give you a good base and your not chucked in the deep end too soon. 

Good luck with what ever you choose.

Thanks Sharon,

I worked as a PCA for nearly 2 yrs then decided to drop it because of the study thing. Although the Uni thing is so tempting to accept and I had only 5 days to think about it and accept/decline the offer. I decided to continue the Diploma of Nursing because of family and self-development reasons. I started to do my 1st assignment now and hopefully to finish next week. I have to go 5 days a week at Tafe 9-4 pm and all I hope is I can do it. Thanks heaps Sharon

For update guys,

I accepted the Uni taking up Bachelor of Nursing. I'm so excited,nervous and hoping I chose the right path to go. We're going to start in 2 weeks time and before we start, we have to study about A&P thru online self-directed which the Uni encourage us to do. Memorizing is not hard but understanding the concept challenge me a lot. I'm just an average in academic but hoping i can survive in 3 yrs time.
