Course Overview

Face-to-face mode:

The course is provided through teacher led classroom mode delivery, simulated training and practical placement of at least 120 hours with a variety of assessments. This course will be delivered over 830 hours, including theory (20 hours per week at an IHNA campus), simulation training and at least 120 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.

Professional Experience Placements (PEP)

Professional Experience Placements (PEP) is a compulsory component of this course and 100% attendance is mandatory. Students must complete all theory and simulation components satisfactorily prior to attending placements.

The Professional Experience Placements will be 5 days a week. Students may be allocated a morning (AM) or afternoon (PM) shifts. Morning shifts usually start at 7 am and evening shifts can finish at 10.30pm. Each shift is 8.5 hours long (including 30 mins meal break).

PEPs are undertaken in partnership with a wide range of placement providers. These providers are located throughout metropolitan, regional and rural areas, and in some cases interstate. Students must consider that they may be required to travel or relocate for the duration of the placement to the facility location. Students must attend as per schedule; no special arrangements or changes will be made on the allocated placements. PEPs may be cancelled without prior notice by the facility.
