I was just wondering if anyone has completed a Nursing Registration Bridging course, particularly in WA?
I have been a fulltime stay-at-home Mum for the past 5 years, and as such I am no longer registered. When I left nursing to be a fulltime Mum the WA Health Department offerred an 8 week course free of charge to become re-registered. Upon enquiring about the course I was informed this is no longer available (ceased in October 2010) and I am left with few options.
The most suitable course in my situation is a program offered by Ramsay Health, although it is very expensive, highly competitive and logistically awkward for me to attend the compulsory theory classes for 4 weeks. My only other option is to enrol in a TWELVE month course through Curtin University, which is even more of a logistical nightmare for me, and I find it ridiculous that the 10 week prgram through Ramsay offers the same end result as the 12 month program at Curtin.
Would love to hear from anyone who has returned to nursing after a 5 year absence, particularly anyone in WA who has completed the Ramsay Health course.
