The Institute of Health and Nursing Australia is really excited to introduce its Student Referral Program for its students, alumni and employees.
This initiative enables our most valued students and staff to participate and contribute to our growth and strategic development. We seek to broaden this program, which encourages students and employees to participate in company-wide initiatives and enhance student involvement within the industry. We would like to use this unique program to improve our internal Net Promoter Score by allowing staff to reap the benefits of the incredible work they do. IHNA is endeavoured to meet the desires of our students and staff members.
Students and employees who opt into this programme must register on the HCI Partner Portal as a partner, with their personal info.
NOTE: IHNA’s course entry requirements apply for all students referred and for all applications to study a course at IHNA. IHNA will at its discretion determine to accept or decline a referral within the program.
*This program excludes students enrolling in courses offered by IHNA that are funded within the Skills First Funding (SVTS), Department of Training and Workforce Development (DTWD) and VET Student Loan programs.
HCI acknowledges the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognises their continuing connection to land, waters and culture.
