'Never a better time' to study Nursing in Noosa

With dramatic reductions in diploma-level study costs and huge increases in health career opportunities, there's never been a better time to study Nursing.

That's according to CQUniversity's Pro Vice-Chancellor (VET Operations and Growth), Peter Heilbuth who has flagged reductions in the cost of the Diploma of Nursing, reflecting increased State Government subsidies in this field.

CQUniversity's Diploma of Nursing offers graduates a role as an enrolled nurse and a stepping-stone to the Bachelor of Nursing program.

This program is available via mixed-mode delivery in Bundaberg, Cairns, Mackay, Noosa and Townsville and internally at Rockhampton.

"At regional, state and national levels, there is a major and growing demand for a wide range of health professionals across Australia," Mr Heilbuth says.

"Government data including from the Department of Jobs and Small Business shows we will need a growing wave of new nurses, health and aged-care workers over the next five years."

"CQUniversity has a wide range of quality programs which led to health careers."

Diploma of Nursing costs now range from $10 800 (subsidised concession), or $12 600 (subsidised) to a full cost of $19 900.

"This represents a $4000 price drop for eligible 2019 students, directly as a result of additional State Government subsidies made available to CQ students through CQUniversity in 2019," Mr Heilbuth said.

"Further to this, eligible students can apply to use the Commonwealth Government's VET Student Loans program to assist in paying for the course."

Prospective students can visit www.cqu.edu.au for details.

At these Expos, prospective students can learn about flexible study options, entry pathways, support services, funding options and more.

Students who finished Year 12 in 2018 may be eligible for a free TAFE course in a high priority industry area funded by the Queensland Government.
