Melissa Sturrock - Student Testimonial - CHC33015 - Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing, Disability)

I was always finding ways to help within the community; like cooking soups and delivering to the local elders) or helping youth groups and so on. I lost my mother at a very young age and my nana showed me how to care for people around me. I came to a point in my life where I was a single mother of four and I wanted to show my children that you can achieve anything you want in your life.

I did a lot of research online about nursing, and how I could achieve this. That’s when I first signed up to an online college to complete an assistant nurse course, however that college was on-campus and living in regional WA, They could not find me work placement, so right at the end of the course I walked away, as I would not get my certificate , if I could not do my work practice. It was then I decided not to give up, and I did more research on colleges and universities that were well recommended. I came across many . However I decided to go with IHNA Perth campus. I completed my Cert 3 in Aged Care and I’m currently studying Diploma of Nursing. (finally a collage that is dedicated to nursing!). The college was welcoming and non-judgemental.

The college was easy to locate, and within walking distance of public transport. The facility has staff members who have worked in the field of nursing. So they really know what they are talking about. When it came to work practice. I was given a placement within ten minutes from my home. The IHNA team are very professional when it comes to teaching the classes, and take the time for one on one if you don’t understand, They make sure that you are well prepared for work practice and the work force. There are labs within the facility and I would highly recommend this college.

I did my Certificate III in Aged Care at IHNA-Perth Campus. I was pleased and so satisfied with my studying experience in IHNA that I decided to continue and pursue a Diploma in Enrolled Nursing.

The campus is very accessible. It’s situated in the CBD and just a short walk from the Perth Underground station so getting here is so easy. IHNA is one of the most reputable schools in the field of health care and nursing education. Perth Campus is a really conducive place for learning. All educators are always available to assist with the practical and written assessments. Literacy educators are experts in their particular field of teaching, approachable and very supportive.

The Institute has Simulation Based Assessment which aims to help students to perform practical tasks better. The clinical practicum provides skills to develop knowledge to improve the learning experience. The amazing and high technology laboratory and online assessment system is remarkable and very easy to access.

IHNA experience was definitely one that I will never regret. It was quite possibly one of the best decisions I made towards building my career and I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to study at IHNA. I would highly recommend IHNA – Perth Campus to everyone!

The dedication, support and motivation of each staff member is great and enables students like myself to achieve their dream.

IHNA has inspired me and given me the drive to pursue further education.
