i all,

Does anyone out here have any feedback in regards to the following nursing education providers:-

1). EQUALS International (Aust) based in Adelaide

2). Australia Nursing & Midwifery Federation based in Adelaide

3). TAFE International SA Regency Campus based in Adelaide

4). Careers Australia College of Healthcare based in Adelaide

5). Any TAFE Institutes in MacKay, Townsville, Brisbane etc

I know where to find information about the educational establishments, but I am looking for feedback from any existing or previous students about their experience and standards of tuition.

I'm a 35 year old British guy planning a massive career change and hope to enrol for late 2010 intake.

I am looking to pursue diploma in nursing through tafe. However I have noticed that the fee is different for the same course across different campuses. I am located in Sydney and was looking at kings wood south western institute ($10k to $15k), at cootamandra it's $5k and at Bathurst campus it's ($1308). I am very confused now. What is the difference ? And does it really matter where I do it from?

Please advice
