What our students say?

Nyakuma Johnson

I really enjoyed today’s topic (communicate and work in health or community services) and understand it more. The trainer explained it well. Also, the campus is very easy to find right in the heart of the city with nice and polite staff and trainers.

Mr. Jan Raymund Garingalao

IHNA is one of the top schools that are highly recommended overseas. So, when one says “I am planning to work as a Nurse in Australia” and the most common response would be “Have you heard about IHNA?” And, having firsthand experience I would say the reason most students prefer IHNA is that it is the most affordable, fastest and one of the most competitive schools that offers the Bridging Program.

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

I was always finding ways to help within the community ( cooking soups and delivery to the local elders ) or helping youth groups ect , I lost my mother at a very young age and my nana showed me how to care for people around you. I came to a point in my life. I was a single mother of four and I wanted to show my children , you can achieve anything you want within your life. I did a lot of research online about nursing. And how I could achieve this . That’s when I originally signed up to a online collage to complet a assistant nurse course , how ever that collage was all of 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 collages and universities, That where well recommended . I came across many . How ever I decided to go with IHNA Perth campus . I completed my cert 3 in age care and I’m currently studying Diploma of nursing. ( finally a collage whom is dedicated to nursing ) . The collage was welcoming and non judgemental.

The collage was easy to locate, and walking distance from public transport. The facility has staff whom have worked in the filed of nursing. So they really know what they are talking about. When it came to work practice. I was given a placement with in ten mins from my home. The IHNA team ,were very professional when it comes to teaching there 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 collage

It was a good decision as I have selected IHNA for my nursing education: Now I can proudly say that IHNA helped me to achieve my dream. I had a quality time there: where I had talented and supportive staff and educators, functional lab, computer library and so on. I am really thankful to IHNA which gave me the confident and exposure to my nursing career, I am going to be a grad nurse at Joondalup Hospital from 12th Sep 2016 onwards and planning to continue my nursing journey (Bachelors at ECU). It would be an ideal place for the student who wish to achieve his/her nursing career confidently and competently.

I was looking for some courses online and saw IHNA courses. It was the first step to get into the health profession. I chose Cert. 3 in HEALTH SERVICES ASSISTANCE (acute care). It was really a great experience. Here everyone is very supportive and helped me in online assessments whenever needed. After my assessments, I had my placement in Mount Hospital where I wanted to be and now, I am working in ROYAL PERTH HOSPITAL as Patient Care Assistant.

Though, I am very happy with IHNA, I have enrolled into another course, that is, DIPLOMA of NURSING, part time. I am finding the online studies very user friendly. I have already recommended some of my friends to IHNA and I am happy to recommend more in the future.

Thank you IHNA

I did my Certificate III in Aged Care at IHNA-Perth Campus. I was pleased and highly 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 task 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 decision 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.

Studying at IHNA has been a great experience, we are multicultural in classroom but we get along well, we had fun while learning, it feels like a second home. My educators and admins at IHNA were supportive every step of the way, although they were strict when it comes to our assessments, i know it was for the betterment of my career. The campus is strategically located in the heart of Perth. It is near the transport station so it was always breeze to come and learn. Now i am a Graduate of Diploma of Nursing i will be taking my education further to higher degree to become a Registered Nurse. I highly recommend Institute of Health and Nursing Australia, for me this is the best place to study nursing, with caring staff, great location, modern simulation lab, i am so proud of to be IHNA nursing grad!

I choose IHNA Perth because they are the most affordable and best value for money because they offer free accomodation for 1 month.

I was doing the bridging course for overseas registered nurses.

My experience at IHNA was really good! The teachers and admin staff are really supportive to us students and really approachable when you need help especially Thai, Justin and Jacqui our nurse educator on prac.

I started the course on April 2015 and finished the course on June 2015.

I am currently working with Queensland health acquired brain injury rehabilitation centre, I got the job 3 months after the course.

I highly recommend IHNA to other people that are looking for a school, they offer the best value for money and quality of education training!

My name is Yousef Parsapour and I have recently graduated from IHNA as Enrolled Nurse My profession was technical jobs then I started working as a Carer. During this time i heard about IHNA that they are a leading healthcare provider offering Diploma of Nursing Course.

In order to upgrade my skills and get a better job I joined IHNA in 2014 as an Enrolled Nursing Student. My experience with IHNA was great especially the support of educators and lovely admin staff.

It was a turning point of my life in Nursing Career and Finally I have graduated recently. I was very happy with the entire course and the assessment system.

I have recommended many of my friends to IHNA and I am still doing it.

Once again thank you IHNA for showing me the proper Pathway and I am planning to do My RN course.

Since I was a little girl, I always wanted to look after people around me. To fulfill my passion and since I was working in aged care at that time I decided to further develop my skills so I chose to study in diploma of nursing..

First of all, I went on google to research about nursing, such as institutes that offer the course, the cost and flexibility to suit my life.

I came across IHNA, and I straight away contacted the administration who helped me to understand more about the EN program.

I got enrolled to the program and the experience was amazing. I met new people from different cultures, ofwhich some of them I can now call them my friends.

During the course I got extraordinary support from educators especially with online and simulated based assessments. Educators were always available to assist students. For example, offered one-on-one appointments for any extra support with theory or practical work. IHNA also provided an english support person/educator to help students improve their english Language. Online assessments were great in the sense that they helped me develop my knowledge in nursing through researching so as computer skills.

IHNA is located in the heart of Perth city, where everyone can access easily by public transport. Operating hours were flexible and suited my family needs to the extend that I was able to juggled both (studying and family). Also the fees are reasonable and they offer a payment plans or vet fee help to those who are eligible.

I am planning to apply for a graduate program and I have been also accepted at Murdoch Uni versity to study bachelor of nursing commencing semester 1 2017.

Thanks a million IHNA for giving me a new career, I shall cherish all the beautiful memories with you for the rest of my life.

Lilybeth G. Bowles - student testimonial - HLT51612 - Diploma of Nursing (Enrolled-Division 2 Nursing)

My Name is Lilybeth G. Bowles When I first visited the campus, I took the Test exam which I found more straight forward than other campus. The staff that conducted the interview were helpful and explained the information about the services in IHNA as well as campus policies.

I chose IHNA Perth campus because I found it convenient and close to everything. For example, public transport, shops, and a wide choices of food outlets. Orientation day was exciting and I met new people who have become friends.

The Campus location was convenient and well organised with lots of rooms. Also, laboratory, Computer lab, and library facilities were available as well as kitchen and student rooms.

I am currently working in an age care facility as an AIN/medication competency. This job motivated me to learn more about the competency required to administer medications & gain physical health learning. That’s why I chose the EN program to develop my knowledge and be more confident to work in a Hospital, I found that IHNA Campus compliments my on the job learning.

My experience during my studies in IHNA Campus during the first unit of our assessment was challenging for me. However, there is a lot of information via hand outs and power point presentations to learn and to understand what the assessment book is asking.

Also the Educator was really supportive & understanding and explained the content effectively. We also had laboratory practice from the simulation base assessment, this is very interesting because we are doing physical assessments which assists further with my on the job understanding.

Student hub facilitates online study for the assessment, in addition Q & A and Worksheets. SBA was so helpful for the student because we could access a lot of information there to answer the assessment, e.g. Power point slides and E-learning resources.

Practical work in the Nursing home is more interesting. Mental Health and Hospital Staff are in place which is also helpful and IHNA staff educator’s visited regularly to see if we are enjoying our work. Working together in the class campus & the Hospital for the last 2 years has been a really good experience.

My plan is to continue work as an EN when I get my registration.

I highly recommend IHNA Perth campus to others who want to start their Nursing career as my 2 years in IHNA campus was very successful and helped me gain significant knowledge. I have already recommended a few people who are now enjoying the experience.

Regina Joseph - Student Testimonial - IHNA

I, Regina Joseph, did my Registration Bridging Programme for Overseas Qualified Nurses in March 2012 from the Perth Campus of IHNA. The facilities provided by the institute were very good. All the staff, both teaching and non-teaching, were very approachable, helpful and friendly. They supported me tremendously during the course and even went out of their way to ensure that I was able to complete the course without any issues.

I am currently working as an RN in New South Wales and could not have reached here without the help of IHNA.

I would definitely recommend IHNA to anyone interested in studying in Australia. Keep up the good work IHNA!!!

Rincy Rajan - Student Testimonial - IRON Program

My name is Rincy Rajan and I did my bridging programme for the overseas nurses from IHNA Perth. Those three months were very informative, enjoyable, helpful and exciting. The lectures and other staff members were really helpful, friendly and approachable at any time. When I get down @ Perth airport, our student coordinator was there to welcome us and I didn’t even feel that I am in a new country. Overall it was an excellent experience for me. I am working as an RN in Sydney and I am very happy now. Many thanks for creating a positive impact on my life IHNA……
