    Hi hopeful,
    I'd have to say that in my experience that sort of thing is the exception rather than the norm. I've never had anyone ask to copy my work, but I'm happy to help those who ask, because it's a two-way thing- those same people have been able to help me out as well. Having said that, there are some that REALLY drive you nuts, but it's pretty rare to be with the same class members throughout all of your studies.
    I wish you well with your studies, and don't be too worried- I've found the majority of my fellow students to be wonderful people and great friends.

    To the girl who sits across from me in labs: Would you PLEASE wear some pants that cover more than half of your ample butt crack or find longer shirts to wear. I can't handle the sight of it for another 2 hours straight!

    I neither hate her nor support her. I think it's highly unlikely she's innocent, that she was stupid and/or ignorant and/or mislead, and that her punishment is harsh but consistent with where she is. I have no first-hand knowledge of her and therefore have no opinion about her psychiatric condition. I do sometimes wonder how much media attention she would have received if she'd been older, less attractive or less blonde/Anglo, though.
    Yes, I definitely have to agree with your last point- unfortunate but true.

    Thanks Skandy - that's hilarious! I always have trouble remembering the cranial nerves- but not for much longer!

    Hi sassy,
    I'm a 2nd year student & have looked into this as I want to work in palliative care, too. There is a 6 month course available (not sure of the official title, sorry) for RNs. Unfortunately they don't offer it at my uni, but I know the major ones do. Hope this helps, and good luck with your studies!

    I feel for her. I don't know whether she's guilty or not but there aren't many people in this world that I would wish that punishment on. Maybe I'm just a softie but that's my opinion. Stupid girl-stupid mistake? Probably, but what a price to pay.

    Have you done a course to get in, such as TPP (at USQ) or a similar program? I'm so glad I did that, as I learnt about academic writing and other skills required for uni. I call it my 'Uni preschool'! It had to do it, as I never completed high school but I would recommend it for anyone returning to studies. Having said that, there are plenty who manage quite well without it, but for me it was a lifesaver!

    Thanks! I did my placement in an aged care facility- coincidentally the same facility I did my aged care placement in! I work for blue care as a domestic while I study, which suits me as it's daytime hours only. Hope you enjoy uni- where are you going to be studying?

    HI Janis, well you interest me particularly because of your age. How did you find it agewise?? I am 44 and only just about to enter semester 1. What are your clinicals? And how long do they go for?
    I'll be honest - I was petrified, especially because I'm a single mum of 3 boys. However, I've found it to be one of the best decisions I ever made. I also eased myself into study by gaining my aged care cert III. You won't be alone age-wise, and there's always support from tutors & fellow students. I've only done 1 clinical so far, and that was aged care for 2 weeks. I have one coming up this semester but I'm not sure whether it's in a block or spread over a few weeks. Good luck with your studies, I'm sure you'll love it and do well!

    Hi everyone, I've just reached the halfway mark in my studies (2 out of 4 yrs) and have been enjoying my first break from study & work since I started. I have my 2nd lot of clinicals coming up this semester and I'm really looking forward to it, though I have no idea where it'll be! I haven't been to allnurses for a while but I'll be popping in more often now I've found this thread. Nice to meet you all & I look forward to reading more aussie posts. :-)

    I'm with you guys- it's a stinker alright! I spend the day getting in & out of a hot car, and when I get home it's straight into the paddling pool!

    Thanks for that info, Braggy. I'm seriously considering rural nursing & hadn't thought of the things you mentioned. Thanks again!
