Completed through RPL, took a while to get started initially, once started was quick to get through. Just had a bit of difficultly receiving the certification in the mail which was a let down.

Student review
The balance between theory and practical was really good, however the only downside since finishing the course is as a junior nurse its really hard to find a permanent job due to the lack of experience.
