There are amazing careers in health all over the world for you to discover.
My Flinders Nursing degree will benefit my future career through the hours of clinical experience I have been exposed to while studying. So far, going into my third and final year of study, I can say that I feel prepared, knowledgeable and ready for my career ahead of me.
Working full time while studying at Flinders has meant that I can study on my own time, before and after work, and complete modules when it suits me. Many of my colleagues have studied through Flinders for this particular Critical Care specialty, and the feedback was that it’s the most flexible course offered, compared to other universities.
Flinders is a leader in academic research and teachers are very knowledgeable. The best thing about my course was my clinical placement as it gave me a comprehensive understanding of the Australian health system. Adelaide also has a beautiful natural environment, a safe and social atmosphere and is very multicultural.
It’s great to be so close to Flinders Medical Centre, where we’re able to follow women through their pregnancy. I particularly like the fact the Flinders nursing and midwifery facilities are so up-to-date. They’re very similar to the real hospital environment, so it’s fantastic to be able to get hands on with real-life equipment from early on in the course.
Working in a hospital setting throughout the degree backed up and helped put into practice what I’d learned; it pulled everything together. I’m very passionate about nursing, and about making a hard time for some people a little brighter.
