It's not too late for aspiring nurses to enrol to study

Published:08 February 2018

Aspiring nurses on the Sunshine Coast are still able to begin their study journey in Term 1 this year thanks to CQUniversity offering an enrolment extension for its Diploma of Nursing course.

The course can be studied online or on campus at the CQUniversity Noosa campus and qualifies students as enrolled nurses, after completion.

Students can also use the Diploma as a pathway option to complete the University’s Bachelor of Nursing course, with credits for the completed Diploma.

The University has received a lot of interest in the course from prospective students thanks to its state-of-the-art, purpose-built nursing labs at the Noosa campus, a sector-leading nursing simulation program, and the flexibility the course offers, particularly for students who have family and work commitments.

CQUniversity Noosa Associate Vice-Chancellor, Teressa Schmidt explained that, due to increased interest in the offering, the University had made the decision to extend the enrolment deadline until midnight, Sunday, 11 February.

“The course officially commenced this week, however we are continuing to receive interest from prospective students and, because of this, we have made the decision to extend the enrolment deadline to ensure these students don’t have to wait until June to commence their study journey.

“The flexible delivery of the course means we will be able to offer catch-up classes to newly enrolled students,” said Ms Schmidt.

To enrol, prospective students should visit www.qtac.edu.au and use the Noosa code 875301 in their application.

Offers will be released by Tuesday, 13 February, with classes to commence on Monday, 26 February 2018.

Prospective students are also invited to visit the CQUniversity Noosa campus if they would like help with their enrolment application or have questions about the course.

Students can also find out more about the course by visiting www.cqu.edu.au and searching for Diploma of Nursing.
