    O my! I have just finished work and I feel that I have been run over by a tram! I cannot seem to shake this cold I have had for a few weeks - just a runny nose and sneezing. well after 7 days in a row I feel awful. Going to curl up with a box of tissues and sneeze my way to sleep.

    Come on Spring I have had enough of winter...............and tomorrow is forecast for 12 degrees!

    Me too, I'll be studying in Australia for my bridging program. Hopefully, I could make friends here because I'll be going there alone.

    Hey- In my opinion (I graduated 5 years ago and am currently doing postgrad at UTS) the cream-of-the-crop/most respected schools (currently) are UTS and Notre Dame. In my practice now, when working with students, Notre Dame seem to be great.

    Not to say Usyd is bad, they are traditionally more focussed on Med rather than Nursing.

    Hope this helps.
