    One of our members, Maelee was kind enough to hunt up some Philippine nursing websites for those interested in going to the Philippines or even just interested in talking to our colleagues there.

    Thank-you Maelee the sites look impressive and give us an insight into what nursing is about in your country. I think these sites demonstrate how much a part of a global community nuring really is and how much we have in common.

    Interested in further education but not sure what's available or not tempted by the local offerings? lets you search for any course, anywhere in Australia (and I mean any - apprenticeship to PhD). For example, tonight I looked up epidemiology courses: I chose the 'medical' field of study option ('nursing' didn't get any matches, even though you don't have to be an MD to get into the courses), selected all the states (by holding down Cntrl as I scrolled), then chose 'any' mode of study, before typing 'epidemiology' into the course name box. There are four post-graduate epidemiology courses offered in Australia, one by distance.
    I then clicked each hit for further information. Here's what you get:
    Master of Medical Science - Clinical Epidemiology University of Newcastle
    Attendance - External
    Qualification - Master Degree (By Coursework)
    Description - This course provides a strong research capacity, an advanced understanding of epidemiological concepts and knowledge of the applications of methods in biostatistics, social sciences and economics.
    Structure - Eight 10 unit courses, and a 40 unit Minor Thesis; OR twelve 10 unit courses.
    Subjects - Clinical epidemiology; Pharmacoepidemiology; Molecular and genetic epidemiology; Epidemiology of communicable disease; Nutritional epidemiology;
    Entry Requirements - Relevant bachelor degree; Grad Dip in Clinical Epidemiology; computer literacy
    HECs - HECs applies to this course
    Course Fee Comments - International distance learning fees are $1575 per 10 units. Postgraduate Education Loans Scheme (PELS) funding available to Australian citizens and holders of an Australian permanent visa.
    Australian Student Fees - Fee-paying places available
    Enrolment Enquiries -
    Related Jobs - Health Promotion Officer, Medical Scientist
    If you subscribe to the service ($22 a quarter) you can access "detailed and exclusive in-depth analyses, ratings and comparisons of institutions and their fields of study; View the FOUR ratings gateways; and View detailed information and profiles on fields of study, courses, campuses, universities and graduate outcomes"
    The only annoying thing is that they don't have web links to the course page, so you do have to find the institution site and then search a bit.
    On the up side, it's amazing what's out there!
