New Zealand Nursing student...newbie!

  1. Hey guys. My name is Rachel and i am a first year (nearly over!) 18 year old Nursing student from New Zealand.

    I just happened to stumble upon this (what looks like) wonderful site when researching for an assignment.

    Just wanted to introduce myself, i cant wait to get settled in this little community.

    Are there any other New Zealanders among the members here?

    I have 5 weeks left of this year, and i have then completed my first year training. It is a 3 year degree course over here. I think its longer in the States?

    Welcome. There are indeed a few New Zealanders here. Hopefully you have found the Austrailia/New Zealand section by now. Good luck in school.

    Here in the states we have nursing programs that last one, two, three, and four years. Weird isn't it?

    *smiles* Tell me about it, although the clinical stuff has been more interesting, the science only got harder.
