Our HLT54115 – Diploma of Nursing sheds light on important health, technical, interpersonal and clinical skills, as well as the knowledge needed to practice nursing within the Australian healthcare system. This course is delivered over 102 weeks, which gives you the chance to comprehend the amount of information given in the HLT54115 – Diploma of Nursing.

FACE TO FACE/ CLASSROOM:

The course is provided through teacher led classroom mode delivery. It would be delivered over 1695 hours including theory (20 contact hours per week at an IHNA campus), self-paced structured e-learning, simulation training (420 hours) and at least 480 hours of work based training / professional experience placement (PEP) over four semesters.

Besides the above structured learning, students are advised that they will be required to do approximate 10 hours per week of unstructured learning.

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

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE PLACEMENTS (PEP)

Each semester will have a Professional Experience Placements component which may be conducted based on the relevant semester in an aged care facility/GP Clinic/Mental Health Facility/Sub Acute Facility/Acute Facility.

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). 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.

The PEP will be arranged by IHNA. We DO NOT guarantee that the PEP venue will be close to your suburb. It can be anywhere in Australia. Students must be ready to travel and stay anywhere in Australia for the PEP at their own cost.

Upon successful completion of the HLT54115 – Diploma of Nursing, you will meet one of the requirements to apply for your registration as an enrolled nurse with Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
