Hello from an Aussie Nurse

  1. Just new to this site and to the internet really. I've read a few different threads. Can I get some feedback on how and where people trained or studied. What is the training like where you are? How many years did you train? What experiences have you had?
    I studied for three years at university, graduated in 2000, worked one year as a graduate nurse with three rotations throughout the hospital. Now I work in the Emergency Department, but would not consider myself an emergency nurse yet.
    Hope to hear from someone soon.

    Welcome to allnurses!

    I think that the U.S. is unusual in terms of nurse education, since there are at least 3-4 routes to get an RN (diploma, associates, bachelors, entry level graduate).

    What about in Australia? Are there multiple degree paths to become a nurse, or only one?

    I am an LPN from Canada. I am working on my RN. Since 2000 nursing schools in Canada have gone to BsN programs and most are 4 year programs.
