In response to this, The School of Nursing at AMA College currently has 54 students enrolled in the Diploma of Nursing in their inaugural year across two semesters,and is expecting its first intake of students to graduate in mid-2024.

Semester 2 students have already completed their 80 hour aged care placement with promising industry feedback, some students have already been offered employment.

These students are preparing for their first acute placement in a hospital setting, completing 160 practical hours with our industry partners at SJOG, Ramsay or Healthscope.
