Having been guilty myself of hijacking threads saying hello and just chatting to my fellow Aussies I thought it might be worthwhile for us to have a thread that is just dedicated to general Aussie chat. We can then discuss... Read More

    Hi, I'm Alex.

    I've just started Cert III in Aged Care at TAFE...

    Single mum, juggling full time studies, two young children (both boys), school drop offs, daycare drop offs, (and pick ups!) a boyfriend, and two cats.

    If I can manage all this then I reckon I can make it as an AIN... ya reckon???
    Hi Alex,
    Good on you! I did exactly the same a few years ago and it was worth every minute. I've now gone on to uni to be an RN but that's a whole other story! Aged care is so fulfilling and important, and many people don't realise this, unfortunately. Good luck with your studies Janis

    I'm hoping eventually to go on to study Health Science (Social Science) at uni... Specifically studying the link between quality care (on all levels), socioeconomic status and emotional wellbeing.

    I grew up in a nursing household. I don't want to be an RN... I don't know how you do it!!

    LOL Maybe because i didn't grow up in a nursing household- I haven't been scared off yet! It's just something I've always wanted to do but kind of put it off for 20 years. Those areas you mentioned are of particular interest to me, , and there are so many areas to work in besides the hospital setting. I have yet to decide but I have a couple of years to work that out. I definitely want to stick with rural areas, though.

    Hi and welcome

    Suggest you check this thread out. You will need to apply for and meet requirements with state board of nursing and they will decide if you need anything else http://allnurses.com/international-n...ng-429030.html

    Hi I am Cathy, 44 and working as an AIN for the past year in community nursing with the aged. Loving it. I've applied to go to ACU next year to do my BN and will find out mid-november hopefully. Also applied for the scholarship too from teh govt. I had my first death tonight and think I am handling it well. Of course I've been through the deaths of my parents so this person's death, though, I got quite close, was not so hard to bear.
