Student speak

''I selected IHNA for my nursing education and it was a good decision. Now I can proudly say that IHNA helped me to achieve my dream. I had a quality time there. I had talented and supportive staff and educators, functional labs, a computer library and so on. I am really thankful to IHNA for giving me the confidence and exposure to pursue my nursing career. I am a grade nurse at Joondalup Hospital and am planning to continue my nursing journey (Bachelors at ECU). IHNA is an ideal place for the student who wishes to pursue his/her nursing career confidently and competently.''- Jismy Ouseph.

''Studying at IHM was a wonderful experience. I did my EPIQRN course at IHM and this has directed me to become a registered nurse in Australia. The course was extensive and there was continuous support and supervision from all the HCI staff. The lab sessions were really helpful prior to my placements. I went to Canberra for my placement and had a memorable experience. Actually, going interstate for placement is really an extra advantage. The staff, nurses and everyone goes the extra mile to always help you develop professional skills. Overall, I would say I really enjoyed studying at IHM, Melbourne, City Campus.''- Alisha Bhandari.

''I would like to share my experience of Nursing study GDN and EPIQRN at IHM. IHM allows graduates to have a variety of roles that lead to working overseas. The teachers are wonderful and experts in their fields. I was fortunate enough to find amazing teachers and peers, which made classes so enjoyable. I feel more confident and the knowledge I have gained from these courses has laid a solid foundation for my future career. Thanks to IHM for the experience of a lifetime, it is one I will never forget or take for granted.''- Amandeep Kaur Gahra.
