For many years I have wanted nothing more than to study and become a nurse, a dream I thought I would never achieve. I was fortunate enough to have found IHNA and have enjoyed my time here in the past 6 months. Upon starting my Diploma of Nursing my worst fear as a mature aged student was that I would struggle with the workload, juggling a family, and working. Let me start by saying the new management has gone above and beyond to make changes necessary to take the college in a new and positive direction. The academic and professional knowledge I have attained is just one of the reasons I would encourage individuals to study with IHNA. In fact, beyond the academic studies, the multicultural exposure is something I admire greatly. I have recently finished my first semester and attached a clinical placement at Bupa Aged Care. with the continuous guidance and support of my educators who have not only inspired me to excel academically but have embedded in me the confidence I was lacking. After 2 weeks of applying the skills I have mastered in class and in the laboratory, I am excited to say I was offered a position at the Bupa facility. Thank you to all staff at IHNA for the quality training and opportunities given.
