The course provides hands-on experience from the first year and equips you with the skills needed to work as a nurse. You get the opportunity to work in a hospital alongside doctors and other, qualified nurses and have the opportunity to interact with real life patients.

My advice to future students is: This course requires practical and theoretical study and is a great opportunity to be able to help others.

Positives: Sydney City campus offer trimesters allowing for fast track completion of the course. Smaller classes allow for tutors to focus on each individual more.

Negatives: Trimesters although allow for fast track completion, have shorter breaks in between sessions which can sometimes become overwhelming especially for new students.

My advice to future students is: To complete a full trimester before making the decision of wether the fast track option and the study load would be suitable for them.

Positives: I found this course great for building on knowledge as I only had experience in aged care. From year 1 the course started very basic and each semester built onto of the knowledge therefore i didn't feel as though i was way out of my league and confused going into every class. There were lots of inclusive activities to build social and/or study groups.

Negatives: The clinical placement hours was challenging when we had multiple assessments to complete whilst having to work full time for free and there was very little support during that time. With some of the classes there was a compulsory component to attendence of 100% and if you missed that class their ""special consideration"" outlines were unreasonable. My course is delayed by 6 months due to missing one day whilst being ill with nil compassion.

My advice to future students is: Go to all the classes offered. Make good connections with your tutors as they will go out of their way to help you and if you have a positive attitude. Start your assessments super early, therefore you're not panicking at the last minute to get everything done. Form study groups so you can share information with your peers. Remember to have a social life outside of university, you can very easily get caught up in the study and lose friendships out side and learn to love coffee; it will be your best friend.
