actually, what confused me before about this post-registration thing is that many schools claim a bsn post registration course but with different descriptions. some claim that it is for "upgrade" only and some say that it is for nurses overseas who wants to be eligible for registration in oz. and there is one (particularly la trobe uni) which states that their post registration course has two streams. stream a and stream b. stream a [color=#333333] for comprehensive professional development and preparation for postgraduate study.and stream b, which [color=#333333]allows candidates to practise nursing in australia.
so from that, i assume that there's actually two types of post registration course, and universities either offer the stream a,stream b or both.
and so i just realized that i'm in the stream b post registration. and yes, i'm aware that after taking this course, i have to retake my ielts and get that straight 7 to be registered as a nurse in oz (as also mentioned in flinders uni's offer letter). actually, i'm planning to retake my ielts this year and achieve the straight 7's to avoid hassle in the near future.
but now i'm wondering, what's the difference between conversion course and stream b post registration?
because what i remembered is, when i asked the idp councilor about the "conversion" course, she suggested curtin,la trobe,flinders,ballarat etc.,(she actually gave me a list of schools and their offered courses). then i noticed that the only uni's with the description "conversion" in their course is curtin and edith cowan. but still, the councilor suggested other unis like flinders (but written in the uni's list is bsn post reg.), so i thought that post reg. and conversion are just similar.
and now i looked at the list again. i noticed that some post reg. course have an * sign while others don't have. (and those with * are the only post reg. course uni's that the councilor suggested to me) and now i understand that these * are the stream b post reg... which makes me think now that conversion and stream b post reg. are the same.
correct me if i'm wrong.
