I was looking for a program with a good reputation for producing quality nurses. RMIT’s nursing program has a strong focus on practical skills as well as theoretical components, which enables nursing students to practise to a high standard.
Learning from great academic staff has inspired, encouraged and pushed me to become a better nurse. Along with our lectures and tutorials we have learned the theory behind everything we do as nurses. We also get the opportunity to practice in well-equipped laboratories, which provide us with an ideal learning environment without real patients. Additionally, we do at least 800 hours of clinical placements to ensure we have appropriate and broad exposure to different nursing areas and hospitals. All of these components help to provide a strong foundation and a smooth transition into the future workplace.
I’m a mentor for first year nursing students, a program I applied to do as teaching is something I’m passionate about. I’ve found it incredibly exciting and rewarding, and something I would highly recommend to future students. I was also awarded a certificate from the Vice-Chancellor for my involvement.
Nursing is such a rewarding career and RMIT’s program gives you a great foundation for your nursing career. The dedicated staff, lecturers and coordinators are outstanding and inspiring. If you want a nursing course that focuses on learning practically then RMIT’s Bachelor of Nursing is for you!
