Hello all,

I am new so I'm hoping it's in the right area. I start my EN course next month with Healthskills Australia  (Yay) but what I found that was lacking was information about clinical hours. I will be studyingand working part time when im not at uni so I'm worried the hours. For some reason in my head I had it as 4 one week placements over the 18 months and I already have a job looking to get rid of me so doing more clinical hours would mean I would need to quit my job. I went to get a blood sample yesturday done and asked the nurse then and she said she did 3 4 week placements and really having no one who had done nursing as an EN I don't know what to expect.

What I'm more asking is how many weeks of placement did you do?

Hi Lilmishy,

I would call your program and ask to find out.  That way you can prepare for the future and make financial arrangements.  I think it varies some depending on the program and school - but I've heard that 400 hours are required for EN and 800 for RN.  Good luck!
