The Flex Studies Program at CQU allows me to take all of my courses through Distance-Learning. This is essential for me because I continue to work in my rather well-paying job in Telecommunications while I study. All of my course materials, quizzes, and most of the exercises and tests can be taken online.
However, everything about Nursing isn’t theoretical and even a new student must learn the many practical aspects of the profession. So, every term, like a Salmon swimming upstream to spawn, I must make a journey to the CQU Campus at Noosa for one week to learn the practical aspects of my profession AND — what everyone looks forward to — every year I must work 160 to 180 hours under the supervision of a Registered Nurse in an approved care facility.
My first Residence School (as they are called) will happen the last week of March. That will be the first time that I physically meet my Instructors and fellow students.
