Doing my three-week placement in Weipa made me more drawn to becoming a rural and remote nurse and giving back to my people. I was able to have a more hands-on experience: applying cultural competencies and applying competent nursing skills to my people. This made me realise my potential as a future registered nurse.
Bachelor of Nursing Science - Bachelor of Midwifery
It’s a great course that I would highly recommend to anyone who has an interest in nursing and/or midwifery. The rural and remote element incorporated into these degrees has given me a new insight into health care, which many other universities don’t include.
