Not getting the most of your Diploma of Nursing? Switch to THINK Health Education
Transfer your credits now and start in October, it is that simple!
Sushma, is a current student in Sydney who joined us last year. Listen to her story about how she found transferred to Think after her previous college left her stranded.
“During the first stage of my Diploma of Nursing my college shut down… It was very hard for me to cope with the situation. I’m an international student and my visa was at risk. I was considering leaving Australia when I received an email from THINK Health Education. I was so relieved. The transfer was quick and went smoothly - it didn’t even involve any paperwork! I got back to study, the campus was bigger and offered much better simulated laboratories. I couldn’t be happier and I would definitely recommend THINK to anyone who is facing the same situation.”
