The Sydney campus is located in Parramatta in the culturally sophisticated state of New South Wales (NSW). Unlike its other Australian sister capital cities, Sydney is the oldest. However, for its age it is a good looking city that constantly attracts both international students and travellers from across the globe. Australia’s best actors, stockbrokers, models, writers and architects call Sydney home, making it an ambitious and attractive city to live in.

Set on a spectacular natural harbour, Sydney’s coastal settings makes it a unique cosmopolitan city with an endless list of leisure pursuits: more than 70 sparkling beaches, fabulous food, festivals and fun. Don’t forget to bring your camera when you pass by the Opera House in a ferry ride under the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Kayak to Manly Beach, learn to surf at Bondi Beach or swim in the blue waters of Coogee. Check out the cobblestone cul-de-sacs of The Rocks or pop into Paddington’s markets, boutiques, cafes and pubs. Most of these scenic spots can be easily accessed by ferry or by bus.

Sydney’s central location is perfect if travel is on your mind; venture to World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains and the Six Foot Track bushwalk. Drive north to the Pacific Coast to Brisbane past the Hunter Valley, Port Stephens and surfers paradise Byron Bay, or head south to Melbourne via the uncrowded beaches of Jervis Bay. Many exciting adventures await you in this clean, safe city all year round as the moderate sub-tropical climate in Sydney is always pleasant.

What our students say?

Adam Gardoll

I am currently in semester 3 for Endorsed Enrolled Nursing. Since I started I have noticed IHNA have come a long way. They do take on board feedback and are always looking to improve in all aspects. They are also holding events like sports fest which I thoroughly enjoyed, and wished it was something they would have more regularly. The staff in my opinion are all supportive and friendly and I am enjoying my studies here. I would also like to say that the lab at IHNA Parramatta has improved greatly since I started and is a good place to practice simulation

Sazh Thapa

Life is a bundle of different experiences, both good and bad, from our birth to the end. People get asked different variations of the same question:

“What has been your best experience?” in life. People may have answered the same question with various answers. For instance, birthday parties, winning games, special occasions, and certain programs, while some others finds that their experience as being parents was the most rewarding one they have had. Personally though, I consider my time in college as my most valuable experience.

Being an international student, I had many options to apply for my college or university. I am also a student who is always concerned about the quality of studies and programs. This reason made me search for different colleges and universities. Finally I ended up with IHNA [Institute of Health and Nursing Australia], one of Australia’s premier providers of quality education and training. The institute’s key area of expertise and course delivery are Nursing, Health and Community services such as Aged care, Disability support and Early Childhood Education and Care, health management and English language studies and I opted for my favourite course ‘Nursing’.

First, my experience in college has given me a chance to sharpen my skills, practice and enhance knowledge in my field of choice. There have been, and will continue to be, many opportunities to learn more ways of improving skills as a result of the time spent in school, which I am truly thankful for. The opportunities of face to face learning with the guidance of tutorials, training, real demonstrations, presentations and motivation on a one to one basis by the institute’s trainer is the best part of the college. This was my first experience studying at an overseas college, with a class that was multicultural and a language that was new. I enjoyed the experiences as I understand it builds up the mutual understanding and abilities to learn about one another when living and working together.

With a fully equipped campus, IHNA provides modern facilities and amenities, sports and game facilities, opportunities to celebrate birthdays and different occasions, including state-of-the art nursing and computer laboratories, a student library, audio-visual equipped classrooms, full real-world based practicals with best of the best tutorials, carrying out demonstrations on real human lookalike dummies which I should not forget to mention. All the practicals in different hospitals and aged care centres were unforgettable, where I was able to translate all my theoretical knowledge into practice, with the help of senior staff, educators and RNs. Every time I was encouraged and given a very good feedback from my senior staff, which was satisfying and made me motivated to perform even better.

Truly from my heart, I enjoyed each and every single second of my time during class without missing a single class in the entire period of 2 years. The love I got from IHNA teachers is precious for me. I must thank Michelle Tolentino [Course coordinator], Litesh Mehta [Lead educator], Jordana Tamayo [Clinical placement staff], Sarita Chavan Sharma – [Staff Admin] and other each and every teacher of IHNA who are very kind, helpful, supportive and stand right behind the students to help them to move forward and reach their goals and their destination, just as parents would do! These experiences are truly irreplaceable and I would not trade them for anything. If I could go back in time and speak to my much younger self when I was first asked the question, “What has been your best experience?” the baby-faced version of me would certainly have been surprised by what my answer is now.

When my daughter was in the NICU diagnosed with severe jaundice, a surge nurse went out of her way and cared for us during this difficult time. The care, professionalism and dedication from this nurse has inspired me to become a nurse myself.

This led me to the start of my journey in nursing, beginning with Enrolled Nursing at IHNA Paramatta. During the beginning of my first semester, i was prepared and excited, although my training felt at times unorganized and communication was not clear. This led me to become stressed and anxious.

Toward the end of the semester one and into semester two, life at IHNA started to improve. I had a qualified and experienced teacher, Ritchelle Enqriquez who went out of her way to help me learn and understand what I was doing and why. She really went that extra mile to teach me how to write academic writing and taught me on a step by step basis, and she showed me to be confident in everything I do.

Through semester two and three IHNA started to feel more like a family with Michelle Tolentino and Ross Pancho joining the team as our educators. The study became more structured and organized. Michelle really put the extra effort in as educator with exams to assess our level of knowledge and extra support through my third placement. I felt I could continue and become a qualified nurse and this is when I started considering becoming a nurse educator one day.

Michelle Tolentino then was named our course co-ordinator in semester four, which I believe was one of the best things IHNA did. This brought with it Easter parties, Anzac day celebrations, sports days and encouraged all of the classes to start talking and building relationships outside of their specific classes which improved the culture of the school. The communication was opened with all educators and staff. This encouraged team work and created a friendly and effective environment.

During semester four we became a family and a new teacher joined our class Jordana Tamayo; a one-of-a-kind-teacher who puts in the extra effort to build content for students who will understand and are able to enjoy learning. This approach boosts student confidence in a dedicated and professional manner.

In the last two years at IHNA Parramatta I have made friends who have become family. With this step by step guidance by the experienced and knowledgeable educators and friendly assistance of all staff at IHNA, I feel this school has offered me the best opportunity to develop my skills as a nurse. The facilities are continually improving and the support I have acquired is unlike any other school. I can positively say that all I understand about nursing is because of the support and teaching this school has provided me over the years. Thank you to all the staff at IHNA Parramatta.

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.

Nisha Gale

What can I say? For sure IHNA is one of the best colleges for career development and to build-up yourself into a good Nurse, and to develop your personality too. It’s a great opportunity for me to be in IHNA where learning is fun and satisfying with good guidance from educators and friends/ students from different countries. I would like to thank my family who encouraged me to pursue higher education and my teachers and friends at IHNA for their ongoing support. In addition, I would like to thank our course coordinator Michelle Tolentino and team of SRC and all for introducing new concepts on community events, sports activities and projects which have added more fun and excitement during learning.

I am really happy and feel proud to be in IHNA and best wishes for everyone for the great future we are going to have through IHNA!

And we are privileged to be a part of a career where helping is the motto. I personally like to help everyone in need. “Save one life, you are a hero. Save hundred lives, you are a NURSE.” Lastly, I would like to thank all the staff of IHNA for the best guidance for my career.

Roshna Khadgi

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my educators and staff at IHNA for their continuous support while I was studying in IHNA since 2017. I appreciate the values I imbibed during the course period. IHNA provides a student-centric environment and helped me settle in quite efficiently. I look forward for the coming 2 years while I transition to Diploma of Nursing. Quote: You learn something every day if you pay attention.


It has been a privilege to be a part of IHNA and I would like to thank the faculty for their encouragement and support. Moreover I would like to thank the new Course Coordinator Michelle Tollentino for the changes she has made, whether it might be extra-curricular sports activities, community events or education implementation. She has made the institute better which has helped me and others in many ways. Quote I wanted to share “Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud” by Maya Angelou.

Additionally I would like to say that we should be proud of what we are learning, because it will make a difference in other people’s life which is more important than the financial rewards that we will be earning. It will give us the satisfaction that we are able to make a difference in the society.

Marissa Maryam Leong

My name is Marissa and I am an international student currently pursuing my Diploma of Nursing at IHNA, Parramatta. Recently I had some obstacles related to my visa extension.

Before starting with IHNA, I was granted a visa by the immigration to complete my accounting study which was supposed to get completed by April 2018. Within 3 months of my accounting studies, I have been introduced to the career growth within the nursing field. I approached IHNA Parramatta and was accepted with a smooth transition.

My Nursing studies will be ending by Jan 2019 and my visa will be expiring in June 2018. Having said that, I need a new visa as per immigration’s advice for course completion.

Without further delay, I apply for the new visa through IMMI account and unfortunately I received a warning message after submission of my CoE. I panicked and was stressed, then immediately approached IHNA and the person responsible (Loretta) to seek for guidance in completing my visa extension. Loretta was so helpful in explaining the procedures, with the help of Admin (William, Sheryl) printed related supporting documents and also referred me directly to IHNA compliance officer (Paola) who was in charge of this situation.

The IHNA compliance officer walked me through the whole process, contacted and liaised with immigration officer in resolving my COE related matters. Finally, we received an email from Immigration department to confirm my COE is in place to proceed for visa submission. I applied for the new visa again through IMMI account on the 1st week of Feb 2018 and was granted with a new visa which facilitates completion of my Diploma of Nursing.

The whole experience in applying for new visa was so stressful, but however with the great help of IHNA, my transition was smooth and worthwhile.
