This course will be delivered over 715 hours, including theory (20 hours per week at an IHNA campus) ,simulation training and at least 80 hours of work based training / professional experience placement (PEP).

The simulation work shop is for review of the learning activities, practicing communication and management skills and undertaking other assessments e.g.: group presentation/individual presentation.

The completion time frames will however vary between students based on their individual skills, experiences and previous studies. IHNA considered nominal hour guidelines (Victorian Purchasing Guide and Western Australian Nominal Hours Guide) when confirming the course duration. This duration was chosen to enable students to achieve the learning outcomes for both the qualification type and discipline.
