Nursing

Nurses play a crucial role within healthcare teams, taking on a high level of responsibility for the treatment of patients; nurses are often the main point of contact, providing continuity of care and liaising with a range of other medical practitioners. If you’re interested in a rewarding career within the medical sector and you’re driven by helping others, a nursing degree could be for you.
Bachelor of nursing courses are vocational, which means you will directly train to become a qualified nurse at the end of your degree. Teaching will begin with giving you a foundation in the basic knowledge and skills required of all nurses, including how to have a good ‘bedside manner’, observing how patients are responding to treatment, and how to administer medication. The nursing degree will then allow you to apply what you’ve learned in a practical setting such as a hospital ward, and also enable you to specialize in a particular branch of nursing that interests you.
