Could anyone give me some advise?

  1. Hi,everyone. Very glad to meet you all here. Actually I am not a nurse now, but will be. For me, the first step is to get an undergraduate degree in nursing. So I wonder which university is good at nursing education in Au.Thank you all.

    ACU HAS a good name - at least the one in Brisbane has. But there are a lot of universities and it really depends on where you will be living as to which one to go to. I do not know if there is one considered the "best in Australia" but they all have websites. This website shows you how to apply to a pre-registration course in Queensland.

    Rarry - The minimum course for a registered nurse is three years. The minimum for an Enrolled Nurse is usually 18 months. Once registered through an accredited college/university in one state you are uaually able to be registered in all other states in Australia without too much fuss.

    Thanks,gwenith.'The minimum course for a registered nurse is three years' I'm a little confused now.I've finished several years nursing courses and have been worked as a RN outside Australia for more than four years.After evaluation.,the university gave me a one-year program.Is this situation seldom seen in Australia?

    Hi, rarry. It is very common, if u r an international student.
    Thank u, gwenith. The website you gave me is very useful. Meanwhile, it gives rise to another question. Does that mean different states in Au have different policies on this matter? Thank u again.

    As far as I know the states agreeed on a "one register" policy so that it was only a matter of formality to register with another state if you are already registered with one state but I won't promise this is so goverment departments being what they are.

    Rarry I Pm'd you to let you know about overseas registration here.
