HI. Wanted to get involved with this great site and find out what you think. I'm 28 yr old male and pursuing the idea of nursing. From what I understand everybody is getting knocked back from uni because of the entry score. I'm actually too complicated to do work experience(age and insurance) but am doing observation in May for two days at one hospital in Sydney and meeting the head nurse in charge of hiring at the Childrens hospital to see if I'm dreaming or not. My worst worry is all the studying at uni because I'm more of a practical person. UTS website says it has the most practical hands on course available, so I'm making that uni a priority( What do people think of UTS?). If any one is interseted to give me some pointers, please do.
Also what do you think of doing ward person work to get more hospital experince?
