Positives: The positive aspects would be local accommodations and good parking at USQ. The course itself has a good online breakdown and lets you know with reminders when assignments and quizes are due.
Negatives: My anatomy and physiology teacher had a strong foreign accent that was almost impossible to understand, he moved through units way to fast without the ability to pause and when you're learning latin terminology in an english format while masked by a thick accent it's easy to get lost. Also, my lecturers seldom responded to online queries and you might have to wait a few days.
My advice to future students is: You might want to wait for a better offer not at toowomba USQ. I HIGHLY reccomend alternate schooling
Positives: The teachers are great, it is very interesting learning about the human bodies and what we have to do as nurses to help them and their family feel comfortable
Negatives: It is bloody hard, it is much more different than high school. They don’t teach you, they tell you information and you have to seek it yourself
My advice to future students is: Don’t trust when your school teachers say they’re preparing you for uni, because they aren’t. Try your absolute hardest and when you don’t pass something remember it’s not the end of the world
Positives: Really focuses on the patient in extremes of how to understand the way their support system is also feeling and how to beat care for them as well
Negatives: Nothing to do with the uni. Just the natural negatives of doing such a full on course
My advice to future students is: To be prepared to have a brain overload
Positives: You literally get so much help from all the nursing staff
Negatives: Honestly nothing
My advice to future students is: Make sure you know what you really wanna study and be sure to do some self-directed learning and ask helps of questions also study groups are a life saver! You all share ideas 💡
Positives: I'll be able to work in a laboratory as soon as I graduate. It's very focused on laboratory studies and I enjoy it.
Negatives: I don't have any at the moment.
My advice to future students is: It's great if you are wanting to be working in a laboratory
Positives: A lot of student support
Student clubs & activities
Negatives: Packed work and online readings
My advice to future students is: Stay on top of your readings/quizzes/assessments
Positives: The things you learn are honestly life changing especially for everyday life.
Negatives: The effort you must put in to get a decent grade. It's honestly hours of studying to completely understand what to do with most assessments.
My advice to future students is: Head down, arse up, dedication and time are your main priorities!
Positives: The simulation rooms available to students which allow them to experience a hands on type of environment as well as the support networks which is also available to all students.
Negatives: Haven't come across anything negative as of yet other then the 3 hour gap between a lecture and tutorial class.
My advice to future students is: Do your best. Get the help when needed. Ask questions, most likely other students have the exact same questions as you would. Attend your lectures.
